COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Pulsar Guardian is a new state-of-the-art facility built by Lockheed Martin that enables the U.S. Air Force and others simulate, test, and train in a multidomain environment that reflects today’s complex space environment.

According to the company, warfighters can bring in any tool, from any company to simulate, test, and train in a realistic, synthetic space environment without disrupting real missions. Pulsar Guardian follows the Air Force Universal Command and Control Interface standard (UCI) and is fully compliant.

Pulsar Guardian can simulate what an Air-Space-Integration looks like by showing how an unmanned aircraft or fighter jet could interface directly with a satellite and get the right data at the right time to take action. Cyberattacks and mitigations can be tested in a sandboxed, collaborative environment.

Lockheed Martin states that its Pulsar facilities reduce travel time and costs for customers and Lockheed Martin employees by being able to bring subject matter experts and engineers into the conversation to diagnose a problem or make changes to a product using virtual and augmented reality.
