The HASDM/DCA amounted to an evolutionary replacement for the comparatively static atmospheric-density model used by the SPADOC system.
Air Force, Army and Navy specialists monitor computer consoles in the SPADOC watch center assessing potential threats to key satellites as well as their interactions with more than 7000 space objects.
The $200 M Block 4N, SPADOC's next phase, will enhance Block 4A space defense capabilities and, in addition, allow improved surveillance of more than 400 high interest space objects.
The SPADOC at Cheyenne Mountain received only a few minor upgrades in the years after Desert Storm.
Ground radars such as Globus II, Millstone/Haystack, ALTAIR/TRADEX, the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System, the Perimeter Acquisition Vehicle Entry Phased Array Warning System, and the Perimeter Acquisition Radar Attack Characterization System all have a pedigree in missile warning from the days when the SPADOC was located within Cheyenne Mountain.
The JMS program, the cornerstone of the space superiority enterprise, will replace the 1980s-era SPADOC system as the C2 system that focuses on planning and executing US Strategic Command's joint functional component command for the space mission.
To undertake the complex and computationally intensive job of integrating data from our sensor platforms and fusing a useful SSA picture, the current JSpOC operator relies on disparate--in most cases, antiquated--technology platforms such as the SPADOC computer system; Astrodynamics Support Workstation; and Command, Analysis, and Verification of Ephemerides Network (CAVENet).
The JMS will replace the legacy SPADOC and ASW processes and capabilities with a modernized, scalable, extensible, and sustainable platform upon which to build the SSA mission set that the United States requires for the twenty-first century.
Today's SPADOC system is not the answer for tomorrow-or really even for today's dynamic space environment.
