Space-Based Surveillance Discussed

In May, the chapter welcomed Col. James Planeaux, USAF, director, Infrared Space Systems Directorate, Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles, California. He leads a government program team of more than 650 personnel and more than 9,500 contractor personnel to develop and deploy the nation's space-based infrared (IR) detection, targeting and tracking systems for missile warning, missile defense, battlespace awareness and technical intelligence. His $18 billion space systems portfolio includes the Defense Support Program and the next generation Space Based IR System. These systems are critical for protection against global and theater ballistic missile attacks against the United States, its deployed forces and its allies. Col. Planeaux described how they provide global, persistent, IR surveillance capabilities to our warfighters and the nation. They are now defining the future of space-based IR surveillance.
