Start Here for Space: Space Domain Awareness Key to Military Plans

Originally aired on: November 2, 2021

Dr. Marcus Holzinger, Professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder, discusses the concept of Space Domain Awareness (SDA), how it differs from Space Situational Awareness, why we should understand SDA, and the broader political and defense implications of SDA. The Space Force and U.S. Space Command use domain awareness programs to avoid collisions in orbit and track potential threats. New ways to keep track of what’s in space and the growing scope of domain awareness as humankind embarks on lunar exploration was discussed at 2023’s Space Symposium in Colorado Springs.
