ATK intends to transition advanced, imagery-processing algorithms used on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to space and take advantage of the resulting higher-power processing to save size, weight and power, as well as cost, on satellites. ATK has partnered with Logos Technologies, Inc. and University of Southern California / Information Sciences Institute on the study contract.

"This award allows ATK to demonstrate our ability to deliver on every aspect of design, development and integration for low-cost, low-risk flight systems," said ATK Space Systems Division Vice President and General Manager Tom Wilson. "We have proven ourselves as an industry leader in developing cost-effective spacecraft systems and tactical intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) programs through the success of the military's TacSat-3 and ORS-1 programs. Our team is prepared to provide similar innovative solutions to DARPA in its mission to provide large global coverage to warfighters at lower cost."
