COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integral Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:ISYS) announced today that it has been awarded a sole source contract from a leading Satellite Communications (SATCOM) service provider to expand its existing satellite fleet control system to support four Boeing 702 satellites already in orbit.

Under the terms of the contract, the legacy command and control system will be replaced with Integral Systems' EPOCH Integrated Product Suite (IPS) and the four Boeing 702 satellites' operations will be integrated into the customer's existing EPOCH-based fleet control system. EPOCH IPS is today's most widely used satellite command and control system operating Boeing 702 satellites.

"Integral Systems and our EPOCH product line is the preferred choice for easy-to-use and cost-effective command and control and satellite fleet management by satellite owners and operators worldwide," said James Kramer, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Civil and Commercial Group at Integral Systems. "EPOCH IPS' open architecture and inherent flexibility allows us to support our customers as their business and operations grow, regardless of whether they are operating a few satellites or multiple constellations."

As an all-in-one satellite command and control system that can be operated right from a user's desktop, EPOCH IPS presents a more efficient, economical alternative to costly command and monitoring practices. It currently supports satellite designs from every major commercial geostationary satellite manufacturer. Among Integral Systems commercial clients using EPOCH IPS include Broadcasting Satellite System Corporation (B-SAT), SKY Perfect JSAT, AsiaSat, KT Corporation, Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT), Indovision, SingTel/Optus, Intelsat, SES, Telesat, EchoStar and Hellas Sat, while government clients include National Space Organization of Taiwan, European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and many others.
