US Air Force Fast Tracks Moving Target Indicator, GPS Tracking Systems with “Quick Start” Funding

The US Air Force is expediting the development of two tracking systems using $100 million in funds from the newly launched quick start initiative.

According to Space News, the Air Force is developing a moving targets indicator system to track cars and ships from space. It would replace large surveillance planes.

The other project, “GPS light,” aims to develop smaller, cheaper GPS satellites. The program is being led by the Space Force’s Space Systems Command. The goal is to augment the traditional global positioning system.

The quick start initiative is for projects deemed critical to national security that must be started quickly.
