The U.S. Air Force is looking for a method of predicting the behavior of orbiting satellites, according to a new small business innovation research solicitation.

The Air Force wants to use data mining techniques to determine patterns and trends that predict future events potentially dangerous to the satellites. The goal is to determine what constitutes normal satellite behavior and then create a model that can detect changes in that behavior.

The Air Force envisions Phase I of the project as devising a logic tree of factors, all of which can be observed and measured, that might affect a normal satellite control network. Phase II would focus on developing a model that would alert decision-makers to changes that indicate threats.
