SPACE 410 – Rendezvous & Proximity Operations

Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

The continued development and employment of dual-use technologies and techniques in space provide opportunities and threats to the continued, and unfettered, use of the space domain for commercial, military, and science users. Our Advanced Rendezvous and Proximity Operations (RPO) Course provides students a higher level of understanding and knowledge of the principles, techniques, constraints, and impacts of RPO from launch to on-orbit maneuvers. We examine the opportunities RPO offers for on-orbit inspection, repair, refuel, debris removal, and other support missions to maximize an increasingly congested domain. Students also think through RPO’s impacts to national and international security implications as part of a contested operating environment.

SPACE 440 – Space ISR

Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

This course is for space professionals to develop an advanced understanding of Space Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and its applications to civil, commercial and military problems sets. The space domain provides an unparalleled vantage point compared to the land, sea, and air domain. Collection platforms placed in space–the ultimate high ground–have the ability to provide continuous coverage even in the most heavily contested areas of the globe. Space ISR can provide civilian and military decision makers with remote sensing data, signals intelligence, indications and warning, battle damage assessments, force disposition, and characterization of the operating environment. The use of surveillance and reconnaissance satellites has evolved from more of a strategic nature to providing more time-sensitive operational and tactical levels of support. The advantage of conducting reconnaissance and surveillance from space has led to an exponential growth in the number of Space ISR satellites in orbit.
