IAI Unveils SatGuard – A New Satellite Operation and Management System

AI-powered SatGuard was developed on an accelerated track of IAI’s Innovation Center

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has developed an innovative system for operating and managing observation and communication satellites. The new SatGuard system is designed to extend the life of satellites deployed into orbit. Powered by AI, big data and machine learning, the system detects anomalies and other irregularities in the satellite’s operations. SatGuard’s development is based on years of focus and experience in space, accumulated by IAI’s Systems, Missiles and Space Group, and as part of IAI’s internal Innovation Center.

Telemetry information received from the satellites enables the system to analyze trends, and identify irregularities and changes that occur in the satellite, address them, and prevent future anomalies. SatGuard was built as part of the IAI Innovation Center accelerator program, operated in collaboration with Starburst, a global start-up accelerator specializing in aerospace. Some measurements tested and monitored by SatGuard included sub-systems navigation accuracy, temperatures, electric currents and voltages, dynamical behavior, communication sub-systems, and more.

IAI has opened an innovation center, called SPARX Innovation Lab, within the Systems, Missiles and Space Group.

Amira Sharon, Ph.D., IAI EVP, Corporate CTO, Innovation and R&Dsaid, “IAI’s innovation center employs open innovation methodology to encourage technological diversity and in-house entrepreneurship. Our development teams engaged in a fast engineering process to create a Minimal Viable Product (MVP), followed by a system that will be used on the company’s operational systems.”

Inbal Kreis, Head of the Innovation Center for IAI’s System, Missiles and Space Group, commented, “SatGuard is an innovative anomaly-analysis system that leverages big data in satellite management. Advanced machine learning, big data, and AI capabilities enabled the accelerated development of a system that provides accurate results in real-time. SatGuard will be used on satellites as well as in other lines business, including customer service, online support, and implementation of trend analyses findings.”
