LeoLabs has been selected to participate in the U.S. Space Systems Command‘s Space Domain Awareness (SDA) Tools Applications and Processing (TAP) Lab accelerator. LeoLabs announced Monday that it will participate in a three-month TAP Lab cycle. The company plans to develop their AI-powered solutions for combat ID and space battle management as part of the SSC’s Apollo Accelerator Cohort II. 

The TAP lab will utilize the company’s solutions for object characterization, maneuver detection, non-cooperative launch tracking, and patterns-of-life analysis, as well as its management dashboards. This will provide SSC with consistent radar visibility of Low-Earth Orbit (LEO). 

The SDA TAP Lab is a voluntary three-month tech accelerator that works on space domain awareness challenges. 

Dan Ceperley, CEO of LeoLabs, commented: “Maintaining a continuous watch of space is critical to prevent surprise and secure this domain. … We’re uniquely positioned to leverage the millions of data points we receive daily to build powerful AI tools that continuously monitor, characterize, and alert anomalous space activity. Our team is excited to showcase these tools during TAP Lab.”

LeoLabs also recently won a contract from the Office of Space Commerce (OSC) for an initiative to conduct a commercial pathfinder project to support space situational awareness (SSA) services.
