Another larger and longer running program is called SSN. DARPA and NASA run their own programs as well, though SSN is a conglomeration of these and other sources. It should be understood that this tracking is orbital path projection tracking, not missile defense tracking. That is handled by NORAD. Of course any naval vessel can track overhead objects in low earth orbit. [/quote] Navy has limited stand alone tracking, relies on space fence, Norad relies on space fence. Space Fence is crucial to Insurance companies insuring satellites, loyds of london will shit in their pants. Insurance will cost more than payload, unless of course, Loyds already knows TSWHTF. The fence is last line of defense for tracking incoming asteroids. [/quote] Clearly a $14 million program doesn't represent our entire space tracking capability. Space fence is about plugging orbital trajectories of satellites and debris into a big computer in Hawaii and predicting future events such as path and decay. That is wholly separate from missile defense, which is a series of radar stations mostly in Canada. Also, orbital tracking is entirely duplicated by NASA. DRPA is also involved. I don't claim to know a lot about this. Your post got me to reading up on it, and what I just stated is a summary of about 2 pages worth of reading I just did. So take it for what it's worth.

This is mind boggling stupid, to save 14 million they are shutting down the space surveillance system that tracks objects in space.
"The U.S. Air Force will shut down its space surveillance system that tracks satellites and other orbiting objects by October 1 due to budget constraints"
Obviously they don't feel the need to track objects past October 1st.
I'd say something is up, they getting ready to bug out, and they don't want anyone to know about the incomings.
