SpaceNews: Defense Innovation Unit selects contractors to build hybrid space network

Enveil awarded contract by the Defense Innovation Unit

The Defense Innovation Unit awarded contracts to Anduril, Aalyria Technologies, Atlas Space Operations and Enveil for a project that seeks to demonstrate a hybrid architecture where commercial, civil and military satellites can share data. DIU, based in Silicon Valley, was created to tap technologies from the commercial market for military applications. Its hybrid space architecture project is being done in collaboration with the Space Force and the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Rogan Shimmin, DIU program manager, said the initial goals are to demonstrate on-demand collection and analysis of imagery and other tactical data collected by commercial and government satellites operating in different orbits.

Speaking last month at a National Security Space Association event, Steve “Bucky” Butow, director of DIU’s space portfolio, said the hybrid space architecture will help support a Pentagon effort to connect diverse networks known as Joint All-Domain Command and Control.

“Ultimately our goal is secure, assured multipath communications that serves the commercial, civil and national security space, not just in LEO but in all orbits, and it should be scalable,” said Butow. 

With regard to cybersecurity, he said, a hybrid network needs to provide security but also ensure access. “If you’re gonna have an internet of things, and they’re all gonna be connected through the hybrid architecture, you can’t use encryption methods that typically we use with small constellations. We have to move more to a zero trust architecture.”

The project also will look at different ways to manage data transport, said Butow. “There’s lots of companies that are responsible for moving data between GEO and MEO and LEO, from space to ground and ground to space,” he said. “We want to take advantage of all that data transport architecture, and to make sure that we have both the least expensive but also the most responsive ways to move critical information to users who need it.”

The hybrid space architecture will be designed to support commercial industry’s revenue models, Butow said. “We want to make it easy for them to exchange their data with end users in a revenue positive model. There’s no commercial business case if there’s no revenue.”
