Surveillance and space

DSTG research in surveillance and space relates to broad-area and battle-space surveillance and intelligence collection. 

This consists of work involving integrating the operation of sensors and assets (including undersea and space based) and fusing the processing, exploitation and dissemination systems in direct support of current and future tactical, operational and strategic needs. 

This area also encapsulates the systems (such as spacecraft, ground stations and data links) forming the space network.
