experts say they need to increase
capacity, flexibility, interoperability,
automation, and resiliency of space
operations and spacelift because
of the increasing number of satellites and space launches expected
in the future.
A multi-band, multi-mission system should be able to contact several space vehicles simultaneously
across several frequency bands and
provide tracking radar to support
the Air Force AFSCN and LTRS.
Air Force officials are asking
industry for information on today’s
available capabilities that companies could demonstrate with hardware in action. These capabilities
should be able to meet the needs
of the Multi-Band Multi-Mission
Systems — Multi-Band Multi-Mission project now, or be modified
to do so in the future.
Candidate technologies should
be able to respond to a surge in
demand for spacecraft tracking and
control; support frequency bands
such as VHF, UHF, C, L, S. K, Q, and
X; communicate with spacecraft
from low-Earth orbit to geosyn-chronous orbit, as well as launch
and early orbit; be able to receive
and distribute several telemetry and ranging downlinks and
uplinks; operate on cloud-based
computing; and monitor telemetry
of several satellites simultaneously
around the clock.
From companies that have suitable technologies, the Air Force
wants to know how many simultaneous contacts, uplinks, and downlinks they can support; frequency
bands supported; viewing and scan
angles; data rates and modulation
types; timelines to demonstrations;
data rights and licensing needed;
technology maturity levels; and
