True Anomaly selected for SDA TAP Lab’s inaugural Project Apollo cohort

True Anomaly is thrilled to share the company has been selected for the U.S. Space Force’s Space Domain Awareness (SDA) Tools, Applications, & Processing (TAP) Lab’s inaugural cohort for its Project Apollo initiative.  

SDA Tap Lab’s Project Apollo is intended to accelerate private sector technology development related to space domain awareness, threat warning and assessment, and space battle management. True Anomaly—which was one of 12 companies and academic institutions selected from a pool of 60 applicants—will provide rapid detection and identification of direct-ascent and co-orbital threats as part of this first three-month innovation cycle.  

“SDA TAP Lab and True Anomaly are cut from the same cloth,” said True Anomaly CEO and Co-Founder Even Rogers. “Sensor access, sensor capability, and data density are only some of the challenges associated with solving adversary counterspace campaigns. Where these problems get resolved is through applications with warfighting relevance—algorithms that implement doctrine. This is what True Anomaly’s Mosaic software was built for. We can’t wait to work alongside our military partners and other cohort members to solve these wicked hard SDA problems.”

True Anomaly is also delivering SDA software solutions under a $17.4M U.S. Space Force Space Systems Command Phase III Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract awarded in September.
