(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

The Defense Support Program (DSP) is a system of satellites in geostationary orbits, fixed and mobile ground processing stations, one multi-purpose facility, and a ground communications network. DSP's primary mission is to provide tactical warning and limited attack assessment of a ballistic missile attack. The Shield/ALERT (Attack and Launch Early Reporting to Theater) is a ground station mission processing upgrade which exploits inherent satellite capability to provide theater missile warning and cueing. DSP is an operational system and is, therefore, included in Budget Activity 7, Operational Systems Support.

(U) Acquisition Strategy:

DSP is currently sustaining production of the remaining satellites, 18 through 23. This sustainment includes post production storage, testing, preparation for launch and on orbit testing. Current contract efforts are required to stretch the support of launch centers to 12 months from the originally contracted 6 month launch centers. Satellite 23 will be the last of the DSP satellites to be procured. The follow-on to DSP, Space Based Infrared Systems satellites, will replace DSP starting in FY02. The ALERT squadron was activated on 1 Oct 94 with an ALERT Initial Operating Capability reached on 10 Mar 95. Further Shield RDT&E efforts will be required to meet the Air Force Space Command Full Operational Capability requirements and for use as the path finder for the first increment of the ground consolidation.

(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

The Shield project identified changes to existing DSP processing to enhance theater missile defense warning capabilities. These enhancements will facilitate more timely and accurate detection, identification, location and tracking of theater missile threats. This data supports attack operations/counterforce operations by providing accurate, timely launch prediction. In addition, this data will support active and passive defense forces by providing target cueing data and precise impact point prediction. The Air Force will transition these enhancements to an operational system, ALERT, to provide continuous real-time warning to the warfighter.

(U) A. Mission Description and Budget Item Justification

The Defense Support Program (DSP) system provides a space-based surveillance system to detect and report missile and space launches and nuclear detonations in near real time during pre-, trans-, and post-attack periods. The DSP system consists of a constellation of satellites in geostationary orbits, fixed and mobile ground processing stations, one multi-purpose facility, and a ground communications network. DSP's primary mission is to provide tactical warning and limited attack assessment of a ballistic missile attack. DSP also detects and reports nuclear detonation events and provides information for theater warning and exploitation. This program element provides funding for development to modernize ground stations to ensure continued operability, integration of satellites to launch vehicles, procurement of satellites and ground station hardware, and operation of the DSP ground stations.
