A senior intelligence officer at the 310th Space Wing has been awarded $2.5 million to develop an AI software prototype to enhance space domain awareness. Lt. Col. Nicholas Demakakos is working on a program called STARCIS, which aims to provide ISR analysts with a common intelligence picture using Large Language Models (LLMs). The goal is to improve intel collaboration and support within analysis, collection, targeting, military exercises, and wargame scenarios. The prototype is set to be rolled out by September 30, 2025, and will be dispersed to initial users among nine squadrons under the 310th SW, Space Operations Command Deltas 5 and 7, and Space Training and Readiness Command Deltas 10 and 11. This initiative comes as the US Space Force is increasingly concerned about adversarial forces impeding US assets in space.
