SatAC is the Air Force-chartered organization that evaluates directed energy effects on space systems, performs assessments of space system susceptibilities to directed energy sources and develops tools to perform satellite and space systems technical analyses.

The AEgis team will 1) research the effects of directed energy on space systems, 2) develop physics-based modeling and simulation (M&S) software tools to perform satellite and space systems technical analyses, 3) perform laboratory and field measurements to validate the M&S software and 4) assess and quantify susceptibilities of the space system to directed energy sources. This contract provides an opportunity for AEgis to continue to build on a long legacy of performance assessment, technical analysis and tool development in support of weapon systems development and sustainment.

“This is a significant win for AEgis and our Western Region,” said Pat Cannon, AEgis Vice President of Western Operations. “It allows us to continue our decade long support to the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Directed Energy Directorate and positions us for continued expansion of AEgis’ space-related work. We are excited for the opportunity to serve our SatAC customer as their Prime contractor and support the mission of the United States Air Force to fly, fight and win in air, space and cyberspace.

Space systems are defined to include satellites, ballistic missile re-entry vehicles, certain boosters/launch vehicles or the US homeland from inter-continental distances and their respective supporting architectures (including hardware and software). The SatAC has performed a variety of safety and survivability studies for Air Force Space Command, US Strategic Command’s Laser Clearinghouse, the US Army’s Tactical High Energy Laser and other AFRL/RD related programs. With the increasing use of directed energy to conduct satellite range finding, calibration and imaging, and interest in using directed energy for space control, a continuing requirement exists for studying and quantifying directed energy effects on space systems. Current examples include ongoing studies to quantify safe operating conditions (sure-safe thresholds and/or predictive avoidance (PA) criteria) for lasers operating through the atmosphere and space and survivability requirements for space systems.
