Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) Overview : 

Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) Overview 1 Presented to Armed Forces Communications & Electronics Association 17 February 2005 Colonel Christopher E. Pelc Program Manager UNCLASSIFIED UNCLASSIFIED

Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS): 

Arrow Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) BMDS Radars Defense Support System (DSP) Command, Control / Battle Management / Communications (C2BMC) Terminal Defense Segment (TDS) Boost Defense Segment (BDS) Kinetic Energy (KE) Interceptors Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (Aegis BMD) Midcourse Defense Segment (MDS) Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Launch Impact Space Tracking And Surveillance System (STSS) Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) Airborne Laser (ABL) Multiple Kill Vehicles (MKV)


STSS ELEMENT CONTRIBUTION STSS Provides Significant & Unique Capabilities For Missile Defense: 24/7 Global Coverage Of Ballistic Missile Events Continuous Tracking Of Missiles & Re-entry Vehicles Through All Phases Of Flight Infrared Sensing To Mitigate RADAR Countermeasures & Improve Target Acquisition By Interceptors STSS Extends The Reach & Effectiveness Of The BMDS System Enables Earlier & More Precise Intercepts Enables Smarter Sensor/Shooter Utilization Drives Up The System Probably Of Kill (Pk) Space-based Sensors Provide Global Coverage Independent Of Basing Rights Agreements Or Deployment Decisions--reduced Forward Footprint

STSS Goals : 

STSS Goals The Block 2006 STSS Program Will Field 2 Research And Development Satellites In FY2007 As Proof Of Concept For Space Based Infrared Sensors The Block 2006 Program Will Establish A Ground Segment From Which To Operate The Block 2006 Satellites With A Growth Path To Follow-on Satellites The Block 2006 Satellites Will Demonstrate The Ability To Close The Fire Control Loop With BMDS Interceptors The Block 2008 Program Will Update Software And Ground Segment To Maximize Benefits From Block 2006 Satellites

STSS Capability Evolution: 

STSS Capability Evolution Surrogate Test Bed Demonstrate Data Processing and Discrimination Algorithms Data Fusion Pre-cursor to Satellite Data AIRS/HALO II Block 2006 Two R&D Satellites Participate in BMDS Testbed Demonstrate Closing the Fire Control Loop Demonstrate Value of Tracking Data Exercise C2BMC Interface Block 2008 Enhance Ground Segment Enhance Algorithms, Connectivity with C2BMC Block 06 Follow-on constellation Small set of satellites Block 06 like capabilities


STSS BLOCK 2006 SYSTEM ELEMENT DESCRIPTION STSS Block 2006 Is An R&D System Consisting Of Two Flight Test Satellites In Low Earth Orbit JNIC Satellite Control Facility (Colorado Springs, CO) Demonstrate The Capability To Acquire, Track, Discriminate, And Report Ballistic Missile And Intercept Events From Lift-Off To Reentry Provide A Space Node To Support Radar / Sensor Cueing Over-The-Horizon, And Interceptor Handover And Fire Control

Payload Thermal Vacuum Test: 

Payload Thermal Vacuum Test Test ISSUES: PMA – TV Fixture fit issue delayed integration timeline (20 Jan 05) New processes/procedures still being vetted 1st ever full-up integration of Payload Risk reduction activities uncovering multiple issues that must then be worked Dynamic process – issues being discovered/worked daily Near-Term Path Forward: Complete Payload integration (20 Jan 05) Ambient Integrated Thread Test (AITT) Pre-test risk reduction (3 Feb 05) “Run for record” testing Ambient baseline (~5 Feb 05) Pumpdown/Bakeout, enter TV test flow

STSS Management Approach: 

STSS Management Approach Gov’t-Contractor team focused on program success Close proximity of SPO and contractors sets stage for close working relationship Team manages the STSS “Program” not the STSS “Projects” Clear definition of program priorities Block 06, Block 10/Block 12(O), Block 12 (D) Optimize program success, not project or contract success Maintain common core system engineering and ground development for all blocks Gov’t – Contractor relationship based upon trust Gov’t committed to treating contractor fairly regardless of program issues or execution No exclusive teaming or work share agreements Allows Gov’t to go to best source to resolve issues Gov’t team is actively involved in the program Gov’t has exceptional insight Gov’t involved in all key program decisions

STSS Contract Incentive Structure: 

STSS Contract Incentive Structure Bedrock of good program strategy execution is a good business deal appropriately codified in a contract “Win-win” business deal and program success more important than the “best” contract or rigid contract enforcement Gov’t “win”– desired capability on time and at cost Contractor “win” – return on investment, profit, good will Key to “win-win” business deal is the contract incentive structure Key features of STSS incentive structure Award fee – incentivizes contractor to invest corporate resources Mission Success Fee – incentivizes mission assurance and mission success Deferred fee structure – Gov’t maintains financial leverage during portion of the program most likely to experience difficulties Cost Control Incentive – incentivizes contractor to complete work as soon as possible without sacrificing mission success Interim Fee Payments – “At risk” fee is a powerful incentive

Looking Ahead in 2005: 

Looking Ahead in 2005 Block 06: Flight 1 Payload delivery Flight 1 and 2 Spacecraft integration complete Ground Segment acceptance test System test planning complete Block 08: Program Planning and enhancement selection Acquisition planning for Block-06 follow-on satellites


Summary MDA/SS brings significant capabilities to the fight STSS Team is performing well Excellent SPO-Contractor working relationship with a shared mission assurance goal Most Block 06 major program risks mitigated or retired STSS is more than just Block 06 Exceptional contract performance in 2004 2005 is a critical year
