- Space Situational Awareness: DIUx is seeking mature commercial solutions from U.S. companies to address the ability to view, characterize, and predict the changing physical location of natural and manmade objects in orbit around the Earth. This initiative will explore augmenting the U.S. Air Force's current Space Situational Awareness/Battle Management, Command, & Control (SSA/BMC2) architecture with a commercial layer. Areas of interest include catalog maintenance; routine and/or dynamic sensor tasking; conjunction assessment; processing of events such as launches, maneuvers, anomalies, and breakups; and any other SSA/BMC2 mission. Proposed solutions should be offered in the form of a commercial business model (e.g., commercial services, subscription, or software license) and be capable of a functional demonstration within 90 days of award. Proposals should address the use of, and requirements for, any commercial or other data, describe any additional network access requirements, and include an initial high-level operational concept and a construct for prototype demonstration.
