Astrodynamics Support Workstation (ASW)

Omitron is the primary developer, maintainer, and operator of the Astrodynamics Support Workstation (ASW). The ASW was first adopted as an operational system in 1998, and was the first mission system to produce a full Special Perturbations (SP) Satellite Catalog and provide full SP Conjunction Assessment (CA) screenings.  It is tuned to the unique Space Surveillance Network data attributes and US Space Force Command (USSF) mission requirements. Its state-of-the-art functionality validated by USSF and reviewed operationally by the Combined Space Operations Center (CSpOC) and various user agencies (Space Delta 8, and NASA). ASW develops and propagates state vectors used operationally for CA for all the Space Force (AF) Supported customers.  The information from ASW is published on to enable owners/operators to take appropriate measures.  CA runs are performed on nearly 10,000 payloads (government, commercial, foreign) to support USSPACEOM’s Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Data Sharing Agreements. ASW provides CA reports containing time of closest approach, miss distance, and covariance data.

ASW is the primary operational ground system in the CSpOC providing:

  • First and only AF certified Special Perturbations (SP) space catalog
  • Unique satellite drag modeling including Dynamic Calibration of the Atmosphere (DCA)
  • Automatic Satellite Maneuver Processing
  • Radar and Optical Sensor Tasking
  • SP Observation Association
  • SP Conjunction Assessment (on-orbit, launch, hyperbolic fly-bys)
  • Performance Metrics
  • Ephemerides Generation
  • Reentry assessment support (used for Phobos-Grunt, Burnt Frost and others)
  • Radar, RF and optical Sensor Calibration
  • AF compliant Training

An aerospace engineering, mission operations, and IT services firm.
