“Creating Smarter Ground Systems”

The 23rd annual Ground System Architectures Workshop (GSAW) provides a forum for the world’s space-related ground system experts to collaborate with other ground system users, developers, and researchers through tutorials, presentations, working groups, panel discussions, and technical exhibits.

The capabilities of satellites, sensors, and computer systems have been growing at a phenomenal rate. With that growth comes a corresponding growth in data, complexity, and threats. This creates challenges in processing mission data and telemetry; predicting system behaviors; and operating securely all without overwhelming the operator or user. This year’s theme, “Creating Smarter Ground Systems,” spans the entire ground system life-cycle. The use of autonomy, intelligent/cognitive systems, and machine learning are some approaches to efficiently exploiting data, predicting and preventing anomalies, detecting intrusion, and optimizing performance. Innovative development processes, architectures, and acquisition strategies can lead to these smarter systems. Come share your ideas, emerging technologies, lessons learned, and roadmaps to achieving the goal of a smarter enterprise.
