As prime contractor, Serco will provide services to manage, operate, maintain and provide logistical and ground support for the Space Fence ground-based S-band radar space surveillance system

Serco CEO Dave Dacquino said ‘From Serco’s RAF Fylingdales work in the UK starting in 1963 through our GEODSS win here in the US last year, Serco brings an impressive depth and breadth of experience and knowledge to space operations,’

Serco will perform space domain awareness (SDA) operations, logistics and organizational level maintenance for the Space Fence radar and supporting systems. The company will also provide cybersecurity, training and knowledge management.

Work will be undertaken in Huntsville, Alabama and Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands, and managed from Serco’s Colorado Springs location.
