From Launch To Ground Control, We Have You Covered

For the past 30 years, we’ve been tracking and analyzing the evolving space environment from low to high Earth orbit. Our history and proven track record of rapid approval, deployment, and support for national and coalition capabilities are foundational.

Ground Operations

Parsons Ground Operations Center As A Service

Through the Parsons Ground Operations Center as a Service (GOCaaS), we perform satellite contacts using the OrbitXchange network. GOCaaS is a 24/7 operations capcity consisting of hardware, software, spacecraft operators, power backup, and redundant hardware. This includes next-pass anomaly contact scheduling capabilities and automated contact optimization with built-in cybersecurity, reducing the cost of satellite ground operations. GOCaaS ensures telemetry tracking and command (TT&C) and mission data delivery to a single data lake or customer operations center. It also guarantees near real-time space situational awareness for each constellation.

We Provide Holistic Support For Space And Geospatial Operations

Space Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning

We’re harnessing cutting-edge technology to bring the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to the space industry. Designed to meet the unique challenges of space-based operations, our innovation provides reliable, accurate, and real-time automated insights for government and commercial space missions. We identify patterns, predict outcomes, and provide actionable insights through advanced algorithms trained on vast amounts of data.

 

Space And Geospatial Operations And Domain Awareness

Through our artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, we’ve aggregated and collected geospatial intelligence, made it actionable, and put it into the hands of operators/analysts so they can make timely decisions. Our advanced ISR hardware solutions include the PeARL family of sensors. By combining camera and optic-lens technologies with PeARL Flash software, we’ve yielded precise, high-resolution 2D/3D aerial imagery.

 

 

Software-Defined Radio Products For Assured PNT, Modeling & Simulation, Test & Evaluation, And Electronic Warfare

We develop and sell leading-edge software-defined radio (SDR) systems that are portable, remotely controllable, and host and execute RF applications. Our products support assured positioning/navigation/timing (APNT); electronic warfare (EW); and high-fidelity laboratory modeling, simulation, and testing of complex RF devices. Cost-effective modeling and simulation (M&S) and testing and evaluation (T&E) products accelerate many aspects of advanced RF devices and systems. They speed up research, development, deployment, and market acceptance.
