(U) The Osan Passive Radio Frequency (RF) space surveillance site tracks satellites using RF signal emmisions to compute angle of arrival observations. This site provides coverage of near-earth satellites utilizing the Low Altitude Space Surveillance (LASS) system.
(U) The 2nd Command and Control Squadron (2CACS), housed at Schriever AFB, is the command and control node for the passive radio frequency (RF) sensors, which includes the 3rd Space Surveillance Squadron Detachment 1 (Osan, Korea). The Osan site is used for the tracking of low altitude space objects.
(U) Loss of Osan would have significant impact on the space surveillance mission and maintenance of the space catalogue.
