The U.S. Air Force is partnering with technology startup Hypergiant Industries to build the first software-based U.S. satellite system that could eventually conduct real-time data analysis for artificial intelligence (AI) applications in orbit. The initial deployment of the Chameleon Constellation is scheduled for next February, with the system to be comprised of about 36 satellites. The project aims to modernize military satellites through remote software upgrades for rapid reprogramming—for example, to leverage new AI algorithms that could be used to better detect threats. Srinivas Bettadpur, director of the Center for Space Research at the University of Texas at Austin, said the project could help military satellites better understand and detect anomalies on Earth on their own. “That’s the desire, to have that level of autonomy, where you can put up an instrument right away and figure out what is going on,” he said.  ..
