Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) (HIGH) Nuclear Exo-atmospheric Detonation (NUDET) PACKAGE (U)
(U) The proposed Space Based Infrared High NUDET Package is one of the several ways to maintain the nation's nuclear exo-atmospheric detonation (NUDET) detection, test ban treaty monitoring, and space environment radiation monitoring capabilities. The SBIRS component of the NUDET Detection System (NDS) will detect, locate and report endo- and exo-atmospheric NUDETs on a global basis in near real-time using gamma ray and neutron sensors on the SBIRS GEO satellites..

(U) The proposed SBIRS Nuclear Detection (NUDET) package is the Space and Atmospheric Burst Reporting System (SABRS). Currently, a study is underway to determine the impact of hosting SABRS on the SBIRS system of systems. A decision will be made in the near future (date: TBD). If implemented, SBIRS GEO #3 would be the first satellite to host SABRS (IOC 2004).
User Impact (U):
(U) The deployment of SABRS on the SBIRS GEO Satellites would continue the United States' exo-atmospheric nuclear detonation detection, test ban treaty monitoring, and space environment monitoring capabilities beyond the end of the DSP satellites lives.
