  1. Operationally Responsive Space Briefing to Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee 21 May 2009 Dr. Peter Wegner Director, ORS Office

  2. Operationally Responsive Space:Four Reasons, One ORS, One Mission Space Protection, robust space capabilities GWOT: capacity and revisit vs. exquisite Technology advancing military utility of small sats Budget pressures, new business model Four Reasons $ Operationally Responsive Space One ORS One Mission ASSURED SPACE POWER FOCUSED ON TIMELY SATISFACTION OF JFCs’ NEEDS

  3. ORS Mission Essential Tasks • Respond to JFC Needs from USSTRATCOM • Simultaneous submission to JUONS process required to obtain funding • Develop End-to-End enablers for USSTRATCOM’s 2015 CONOPS MMSOC Kodiak Launch Complex Rapid Assembly and Test WALLOPS / Minotaur I Minotaur Family of LV’s VMOC Cape Plug ‘n Play Falcon I Tactical TPED Vandenberg AFB RAPTOR CDL MIST Responsive Busses/Payloads Manufacturing Super Strypi Responsive C2 / TPED Responsive Range Responsive Launch Kwajalein

  4. CDR USSTRACOM Desired 2015 End-State ORS Needs ORS Approaches Warfighting Effects Gaps / Needs Identified and Prioritized by USSTRATCOM

  5. Operationalizing the ORS 2015 Blueprint JFC Needs US STRATCOM ORS Playbook Tier 1 Solutions Tier 1 Capability Shortfall Tier 2 Services ORS “Common Utilities” Rapid Response Space Center Mission Design Tool Govt s/w Library ISR Mission Kit Comm Mission Kit Tier 2/3 Solutions Rapid Transport to Launch Range New Capabilities S&T Infusion Space Protection Mission Kit Rapid Integration & Launch Tactical Tasking & Downlink Tier 3 Tier 2 Capability Shortfall Enabler Spirals ORS Office Innovation Cell

  6. Analogy for ORS Tier-2 Operating Concept Recon Wing Capability for Space • Responsive Platforms • Satellite buses • Plug-n-play satellite payloads • Launch Vehicles • Rapid Build-Up/Turn Times • JFC Call-Up • Operation, not acquisition • Air Tasking Order Responsiveness • Sustained high ops tempo Responsive Payloads Responsive Buses • Payload Flexibility • Telescopes, comm pkgs, Mini-SAR • RF ID, PAN/MSI/HSI backplane • Bus Flexibility/Compatibility • Plug n Play, standard interfaces • Modularity • Responsive Infrastructure • Scalable, Responsive Lift • Responsive Range & Network • Responsive Sat Ops • Responsive, Tailorable C2 & TPED ORS Office Architect & Demonstrate Services Procure, Field, Operate, Sustain On-Demand Launchers

  8. “Joint Task Force – ORS” Mission Data JTF-ORS: A task-organized space expeditionary force delivering assured space power focused on timely satisfaction of Joint Force Commanders’ needs TT&C CDL Libraries AFSCN Responsive Ranges Modular RF Payloads SAR, Comm, Tac E/W Modular EO Payloads PAN, HSI, IR, Missile Warning, SSA Mission Design Tool Pre-Fabricated Bus Structures/PnP Backplanes Rapid Response Space Facility (Mission Planning, SE, AI&T, Logistics) Multi-Mission SOC

  9. TacSat 1-5: Tech Maturation and Operational Experimentation • TacSat-2 • Medium Res. Imagery • SEI/AIS • Introduce Space-Ground common data link for Tactical Comms • Early Rapid Launch & Checkout Procedures • Increased Autonomy Experimentation • Single-pass TPED • Mission Complete • Launched Dec 16 2006 • TacSat-1/1A • Maritime Domain Awareness: automatic identification system (AIS) • Low res imagery • Encrypted links • SIPRNET Networking • Cross-Platform Experimentation • Working with NRL on plans • Launch TBD • TacSat-3 • Land-Focused Hyperspectral Payload • 1st Implementation of Selected Bus Standards • Secondary Data-exfiltration (data-X) Payload • Continue Process Dev. for Rapid Launch & Check-Out Ops. • Launched 8 May 2009 • TacSat-4 • Comm-on-the-move/blue force tracking/data-X/Ship Tracking • Test Long Dwell tailored Orbits (highly inclined, elliptical) • 1st System-Level Standardized Bus • Space Qualify High Assurance Internet Encryption • Launch 1 Sep 2009 • TacSat-5 • Next-generation plug-and-play bus development by AFRL with industry • Mission payload TBD • Launch Mid FY 12

  10. APPROVED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE ORS International Collaboration StrategyNotional Strategy: In coordination, not fully vetted within the Department 3. Coalition Partners – procure or reproduce additional copies • Establish agreement for international participation 4. Coalition Partners – enter into data sharing and tasking agreements 2. Develop ORS satellites & broker coalition strategy Partners Can Buy The Capability of a Constellation….For The Price of a Single Satellite Goal: Harness capabilities of coalition space assets and enable coalition participation in ORS constellations

  11. ORS is… Focused on developing enabling capabilities for operational reconstitution and augmentation Creating an operational capability with service partners Creating a strategy for international collaboration Transforming the space enterprise Challenges… Very short launch timelines – days for notification Launch range safety processes – clearing, public safety, etc… APPROVED FOR PUBLIC RELEASE Opportunities and Challenges! This statement is posted on the white house web site (http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/defense/): Space: The full spectrum of U.S. military capabilities depends on our space systems. To maintain our technological edge and protect assets in this domain, we will cooperate continue to invest in next-generation capabilities such as operationally responsive spaceand global positioning systems. We will cooperate with our allies and the private sector to identify and protect against intentional and unintentional threats to U.S. and allied space capabilities.
