Space Resilience

satellite

Resilience is the ability of an architecture to support the functions necessary for mission success in spite of hostile action or adverse conditions. An architecture that is more resilient can provide these functions with higher probability, shorter periods of reduced capability, and across a wider range of scenarios, conditions, and threats. Resilience may leverage cross-domain or alternative government, commercial or international capabilities.

  • Avoidance: countermeasures against potential adversaries
  • Robustness: architecture properties and design features to enhance survivability and resist functional degradation
  • Reconstitution: plans and operations to re-establish full operational capability and capacity for the full range of missions, operations, or contingencies
