Support global SSA effort using a constellation of 12U in LEO, observing the MEO and GEO orbital bands.

Description

Support the global SSA effort using a constellation of 12U nanosatellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO), observing the Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and GEO orbital bands. Hyperion will provide large amounts of disparate data into the SSN. It can observe any GEO object from multiple vantage points at the same time to support object characterization. Significantly, it is Hyperion’s ability to have “persistent custody” of any GEO or MEO object of interest, which will not only provide improved observation of the space environment and monitoring of suspicious activity but will better support emerging activities such as rendezvous for on-orbit servicing.
