On this #TechTuesday we found that General Dynamics (GD) is to develop ground structures for USAF Space Fence programme.

Lockheed Martin had awarded a contract to (GD) C4 Systems SATCOM Technologies to design and build the ground structures for the US Air Force’s Space Fence program.

This contract is part of a $915m deal that was awarded by the U.S. Air Force to Lockheed earlier this past June. This Space Fence will be a multistatic radar system made to increase the service’s abilities of not only identifying but also, tracking space debris.
