OPPORTUNITY OVERVIEW

The Vice Chief of Space Operations, Gen David D. Thompson, directed a Data Sprint to create a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for Space Domain Awareness (SDA) data storage, access and operational use. He states, “The U.S. Space Force requires an SDA MVP that is interoperable and integrated with other Department of the Air Force (DAF) and Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) systems supporting Decision Advantage/Superiority, while being more secure, scalable, sustainable and operationally focused than the current approach.”

Furthermore, “the foundation of an interconnected force is its digital infrastructure, which we must treat as a critical strategic asset if we are to be truly “datacentric.” Our data networks must be bandwidth-rich while also being reliable throughout the spectrum of conflict and secure across multiple security levels. Our shared data repositories must also be visible and accessible to those who need it and secured against those who don’t.” – USSF/CTIO, U.S. Space Force Vision for a Digital Service.

These ideals will serve as the foundation for the next iteration of the USSF’s data repository, serving as the single source for accessing and managing all data in support of operational systems. It will provide a central location to find, and access data, enabling superior analytics through data integration and strengthening data security and trust. The USSF’s data repository will be the service’s contribution to the Department of the Air Force Data Fabric, making all data visible, accessible, understandable, linked, trustworthy, interoperable, and secure.
