Space Fence: Watching Over Us
We rely heavily on space for navigation, communication, and even health care research. Lockheed Martin is currently developing its technology solution for Space Fence, a program that will revamp the way the U.S. Air Force identifies and tracks objects in space. Space Fence will detect, track and catalog more than 200,000 orbiting objects and help transform space situational awareness from being reactive to predictive, giving the Air Force more time to anticipate events potentially impacting space assets and missions. Through Space Fence, the U.S. Air Force is significantly improving its space situational awareness to protect our satellites and astronauts from spinning debris and other orbital objects before disaster strikes.
