Space Solutions to Critical Military Problems

Johns Hopkins APL’s National Security Space Mission Area enables mission partners at all levels of government to realize highly classified and critically important missions for national security. Through an intimate understanding of threats in the space domain and the challenges associated with them, we address the unique problem sets and deliver novel solutions.

The National Security Space Mission Area has rapidly evolved to address the interconnected threats facing today’s warfighter. We apply innovative modeling and simulation, along with insightful analysis, to enable sponsors to make critical national security decisions. We also build and operate technical demonstrations to showcase proof-of-concept capabilities on Earth and in-orbit.

Our work includes producing robust hardware and software to meet warfighter needs, providing technical leadership to develop operationally robust security space systems and collaborating with mission partners to address national security challenges.
