AFFORDABLE, ELEGANT SMALL PAYLOADS TO ENABLE THE NEXT-GENERATION OF DISTRIBUTED SPACE ARCHITECTURES
Founded in 2004, GEOST develops and builds optical collection systems that provide decision dominance using data in, and from, space.
Within our specialties, GEOST has extensive technical capabilities on par with large industry primes and provided at a lower cost. We are enabled by a small business mindset that is nimble and willingly tailors end-solutions to meet customer mission needs.
GEOST strives to solve our customer’s difficult problems through cutting edge ground and space-based sensor payloads and mission support solutions.
GEOST intends to revolutionize the space-based payload market with innovative and novel designs for space, terrestrial, and airborne environments.
GEOST will become the premier provider of small and medium payloads for Space Protection, Missile Warning, and Space Domain Awareness solutions.
Space Domain Awareness
Knowing the local environment around your space system is a difficult challenge, and GEOST’s proven capabilities can help. GEOST offers extensive space domain awareness solutions, from single point sensors to complete solutions that provide awareness and protection across a large constellation of distributed systems.
GEOST develops and builds a broad range of capabilities, from ground-based optical collection systems to affordable on-orbit small size, weight, and power electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, along with the associated sensor processing, analysis, and ground infrastructure. GEOST also has significant experience with terrestrial space domain collection, including globally deploying and operating remote autonomous systems.
Space-Based Missile Warning
Providing Alert from above: GEOST specializes in the small, affordable, high-performance infrared (IR) sensors for space-based missile warning and tracking. These small yet powerful sensors are at the heart of current and future space-based missile warning and tracking architectures as those missions move to disaggregated satellite constellations spread across multiple orbital regimes for greater resiliency.
Laser communications offer the promise of securely moving large amounts of data over long distances at the speed of light. GEOST is a part of that secure communications solution.
GEOST offers a range of laser communications capabilities, from robust low-cost autonomous optical ground stations to complete laser communications terminals, as well as unique cutting-edge components such as gimbal-free beam steering.
Space traffic management
Having awareness of a satellite’s environment on-orbit is vital for safe access to space, and GEOST’s sensors and data, along with the accompanying analytics, can provide that knowledge. GEOST offers a broad range of space traffic management solutions, from ground-based optical collection systems to affordable on-orbit small size, weight, and power electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) sensors, along with the associated sensor processing, analysis, and ground infrastructure.
Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance sensors (ISR)
GEOST has developed and fielded numerous highly-capable small size, weight, power, and cost electro-optical/infrared sensors (EO/IR) across a range of applications. From terrestrial collection devices to on-orbit sensors in all orbital regimes, GEOST’s affordably elegant and compact sensors meet a range of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission needs for the warfighter.
