Northrop Grumman Receives $21.8M Contract to Support the STSS-D


northrop-grumann
In March of 2015, Northrop Grumman received a USD $21.8 million contract modification to support the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS-D), bringing the total cumulative contract value to USD $2.39 billion. The STSS-D constellation consists of two satellites, built by Northrop Grumman, orbiting at 1350 km, 58 degree inclination, with 120 minute orbital period.

These satellites demonstrate capabilities required for birth-to-death tracking of ballistic missiles and other cold objects in space. They use sensors that are capable of detecting visible and infrared light and serves as the experimental space layer of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The objective of the mission is to provide accurate tracks of midcourse re-entry vehicles to the shooter. Boosting targets are detected by an acquisition sensor and targets are autonomously handed off to track sensor. According to the Northrop Grumman website, using sensors capable of measuring infrared radiation from the vantage point of space, the satellites have demonstrated their ability to detect missile launches, track missiles from boost into midcourse and communicate with missile defense command and control systems. Both satellites fly and work in tandem as a risk-reduction mission by the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), paving the way for an operational constellation.
