CATS - Hartman


The Space Based Infrared System
Brian Hartman
Chief Ground System Architect, Lockheed Martin Management & Data Systems

Lockheed Martin Management & Data Systems in Boulder, Colorado is home to over 300 technical and support professionals involved in development of mission-critical distributive systems to support satellite command and control ground systems. The primary program in Boulder is the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS), a system designed to replace the nation's current Defense Support Program (DSP) with next-generation infrared sensors and ground processing technologies. Research and development of ways to use SBIRS technology in commercial applications is also underway at the facility. An overview of the SBIRS system will be presented, including the motivation for the SBIRS missions. A description of a few of the key technological aspects of the system, such as infrared surveillance, sensor tasking, sensor scheduling, and data processing/filtering will be given.

Refreshments will be served immediately following the presentation.

The Colorado Advanced Technology Series wants to introduce students at the University of Colorado to the technology leaders of local and national industries and help the leaders of those companies explain what their companies do and why they are great places to work. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming talks, subscribe to our CATS Mailing List.

The main event of CATS is a series of technical talks in the middle of each semester. In each seminar, a technical or business leader from a local or national company describes new or existing technical developments, the motivation for developing that technology and the corporate environment. Each seminar is followed by refreshments and a chance for students and industry representatives to mingle and talk. See CATS Frequently Asked Questions for further information.
