Omitron awarded task order to provide Astrodynamics and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) support to DARPA

Omitron is a subcontractor to Pacifica Defense Solutions for the OrbitOutlook (O2) DARPA program that aims to improve the SSN by adding more data more often from more diverse sources to increase space situational awareness to determine when satellites are at risk. O2 comprises three elements: the inclusion of new telescopes and radar from diverse locations providing diverse data types; a central database for this newly extended network of telescopes and radar; and a validation process to ensure the data is accurate. O2 also seeks to demonstrate the ability to rapidly include new instruments to alert for indications and warnings of space events.
