During the tour, attendees will learn about the history, mission and vision of the Space ISAC. We will tour through the Cyber Vulnerability Lab and the Watch Center. 

The Cyber Vulnerability lab is a sandbox environment that allows for pen testing and malware analysis on a segmented network. This lab will allow commercial Space Organizations to host research projects to include students, academia, commercial, and government. Commercial space companies will test systems for deployment, with a direct interface with the Watch Center to inform Vulnerability Analysis. This lab is currently in its Pilot Phase. 

The Watch Center fuses disparate data sources to create a complete picture of ground and space for collective defense of the global space community. Space ISAC analysts track adversary activity across segments. Initial operating capability converges on the cyber and physical threats to the space domain.
