Because of emerging threats, the SSA mission must move beyond routine catalog maintenance towards a predictive, time-critical BMC3 environment.
Like its AOC counterpart, the space community needs to develop a BMC3 capability that includes AOC-like analysis, data fusion, and identification of threats.
Space BMC3 goes beyond a routine, steady-state picture, creating a tactical monitoring posture for high-interest items that can affect space assets.
To maintain space superiority, we must tightly couple BMC3, SSA, and tactical intelligence in an architecture that enables decision makers to select courses of action in hours rather than days.
Like C2 systems in the air world, space superiority BMC3 systems should evolve by leveraging ISR data within federated SOAs and data-mining systems.
