#CASAMOn-Orbit servicing, assembly, and manufacturing

DATES:aPRIL 27 - jULY 23, 2021


How can we make servicing satellites in space as easy as maintaining your car?


Future on-orbit servicing (OOS) capabilities and in-space manufacturing will extend operational lifetimes of satellites and thus will reduce lifecycle costs and enable new systems and missions. These effects could be achieved not only through refueling, repairing, or recycling of satellites, but also through satellite orbit correction and in-space manufacturing. Additionally, OOS creates a prospect of establishing a commercial servicing and debris removal network lending from the same technology base.

Commercial space sector is beginning to move toward robotic servicing as an integral part of its space architecture. As standardized interfaces become more prevalent throughout the satellite manufacturing industry, costs will inevitably decrease. Standardized plug-and-play capabilities have benefited many industries, such as home computers.

The implications for in-space manufacturing are seemingly limitless. Therefore, the USSF is seeking bold and disruptive technologies enabling on-orbit servicing and manufacturing.

ANOVA Intelligence is a mission-critical cyber anomaly detection and data analysis software company. Our AI/ML-powered software arms critical infrastructure IT & OT systems with the defensive weapon system, battleplan and intel they require to neutralize advanced persistent threats (APTs).

CyberCentric is a data classification platform. Using advanced artificial intelligence techniques, we enable organizations to know precisely who has access to the organization’s most sensitive data and how that data is being stored in real time.
Astrapi’s Spiral Modulation opens the door to spectral efficiency improvements of 2X or greater, driving wins in data throughput, SWaP, interference mitigation, anti-jamming, and LPD. We do this by for the first time fully exploiting the capabilities of a continuously non-stationary spectrum, bypassing an implicit limitation in classical channel capacity theory. A derivative technology, Symbol Waveform Hopping, provides an advanced approach to LPI at the physical layer and without the latency of encryption. Astrapi will license its technology to established OEMs providing the modems, radios and sensors that support network communications in defense and commercial markets.
Corlina makes data & video intelligence secure and trusted at the edge. At Corlina, we ensure data integrity and operational system security that makes an IoT implementation worthy of Trust. The adoption of edge compute starts with “connected devices,” and Corlina’s System of Trust ensure that billions of powerful edge devices remain secure and reliable, while limiting the impact on edge device performance. The Corlina Trust Platform creates a record of events that establishes an immutable chain of evidence on collected data to certify security and accuracy. It is designed from the ground up to be lightweight and non-intrusive for the most restrictive host environments, with a distributed architecture built for scalability and resiliency. Corlina’s patented Trust algorithm (TrustScoreTM and TrustTokensTM) regularly calculates an immutable signature and key for each edge device that includes the state of the device, its behavior, and its location, ensuring the integrity of the device at a point in time. Corlina provides instantaneous notifications of changes in device state that can be used to validate the overall security and integrity of an IoT system, even across organizations and geographies.
ARMS Cyber Defense is a cybersecurity startup founded by three Vanderbilt alumni all with DoD and government backgrounds aimed at securing the legacy software in the DoD, IC, and US government. Arms Cyber Defense provides a proactive defense-in-depth cyber security solution by utilizing cutting edge micropatching (fixing known vulnerabilities) and code diversifying technologies. We do this by diversifying the code structure (scrambling the code structure, think radio frequency hop or whack-a-mole) so each application has a different code structure with no latency to the user. Adversaries will no longer have the ability to craft one exploit that can propagate throughout DoD/IC/Government systems because each application will now have a different code structure.
DornerWorks helps product makers turn their ideas into reality through technological innovation. The Virtual Machine (VM) Composer is the “easy button” that takes away the pain of configuration, construction, and deployment of multi-operating systems using the formally proven, open source, seL4 microkernel. The VM Composer enables developers in a variety of markets to leverage the power of virtualization in their embedded products, realizing the many cost and capability benefits this technology brings, while relying on the high assurance, bug-free hypervisor to provide rock-solid separation and isolation between software stacks.

Using our innovative technologies, a new space industry can be created – space based Data Centers.
Since late 2015, we have been perfecting our proprietary, patent pending photonic method of data storage which puts data in a constant state of perpetual motion. Achieved through the use of ultra-high bandwidth lasers, data now moves in an endless circulating loop.
LyteLoop’s revolutionary “storage in motion” technique will transform how data is stored while providing a myriad of unique and customizable advantages based on the desired LyteLoop application deployed. LyteLoop now makes it possible to harness the power of light to store huge amounts of data in spaced based Hyperscale Storage Data Centers.

At Vitro, our mission is to replace subjective claims of authority with the objective authentication of secret and secure IoT operating data. Trusted automation relies heavily on authentic real-world data inputs. Vitro Zero-Trust IoT secures remote IoT devices and data (scanners, sensors, scales and meters), then serves authenticated IoT data via a Zero-Trust Broker to trusted automation, including: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Digital Twins and Blockchain Smart Contracts. Vitro Shard mini PCI express cards make IoT connectivity and data authentication autonomous and modular. Vitro Crystal gateways make open, scalable IoT networks simple and secure to provision and operate.
