Miniaturised Orbital Electronic Warfare Sensor Systems (MOESS) – Phase 1

Project Summary

Delivery of a space-based tactical EW sensor system to provide persistent, resilient and adaptable situational awareness.

The funding provided by DIP is to support activities for Phase one of the project which will deliver the proof of concept of various subsystems.

Project Outcomes

The project involved research and development in:

  • Orbital Modelling
  • Communications Link Software Defined Receiver Design
  • Cryptography Design
  • Space System Design

MOESS Ph1 Verification and Validation activities demonstrated a viable TRL3 proof of concept, positioning the project progress through to TRL 4 and 5.

DEWC were successful in securing a $3.1 million contract from the Innovation Hub to undertake Phase 2 of the MOESS project.
