Enhancing Space Situational Awareness: Meet Charles River Analytics at AMOS

Meet staff from Charles River Analytics, developer of intelligent systems solutions, at the Advanced Maui Optical and Space Surveillance Technologies Conference (AMOS).

Engineered Intelligence for Space

Space is a contested, congested, and competitive international playing field. US intelligence agencies must maintain space situational awareness (SSA)—they must monitor, understand, and predict the behavior of objects, such as satellites, that are in orbit around Earth.

With this in mind, we are proud to sponsor and showcase our capabilities at AMOS. As the premier technical conference in the US devoted to space surveillance, AMOS fuels dialogue for military, contractor, and academic participants. The conference draws global attendance, which reflects the importance of situational awareness as more organizations engage in space activity. AMOS takes place at the Wailea Beach Resort in Wailea, HI, from September 17 to 20, 2019.

Stop by our booth or contact us to discuss how we can be your partner in innovation!

At AMOS, our scientists and engineers will present some of our recent efforts for DARPA’s Hallmark program. Hallmark seeks to help operators quickly develop SSA in the complex space domain. During military operations, operators must quickly combine information from disparate data sources to accurately track assets in space, understand events, and develop courses of action to mitigate threats. Our current research includes:

  • SOLAR, our Space Battle Management Command and Control mixed reality application suite that allows operators to quickly make sense of outputs from novel AI, machine learning, and other advanced analytic tools developed by both Charles River Analytics and third-party companies.

  • PICASSA, our software tool that improves threat detection in space using advanced probabilistic reasoning. When viewed within SOLAR’s interactive visualizations, space operators can easily understand and incorporate outputs from PICASSA’s reference models and decision algorithms into their SSA and course-of-action workflow..
  • Figaro™, our free, open-source probabilistic programming language. Figaro makes it possible to express probabilistic models using the power of programming languages and includes built-in reasoning algorithms for application to new models.
