A little post from Space Scouts
Neil Passingham of #GardPassCyber, Roger Dewell and Simon Arnell recently responded to NATO’s 2021 #innovation challenge with two associates under the team name of #SpaceScouts.
The concept of Space #SituationalAwareness (SSA) is all about tracking what is happening in the Near Space environment, including threats and vulnerabilities that have the potential to affect the safety, security and interests of all parties. Only by greater awareness can the situation be controlled and, in future years, mitigated through Active Debris Removal and/or moving space assets to avoid predicted collisions.
Much can be learnt from #cyber SA - seeing the “big picture” whilst reliably identifying a “needle in a haystack” (such as an #APT) so that decisions can be made and play-booked actions can be executed.
Effective decision-making requires timely access to reliable data, collected and presented in intuitive ways. Data within the context of space situational awareness however may take many forms, coming from disparate sources, imperfect, fragmented and potentially contradictory.
