COLUMBIA, Md., Sept. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integral Systems, Inc., (Nasdaq:ISYS) announced today that the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) has awarded the Company a $1.5M contract modification to its Command and Control System-Consolidated (CCS-C) contract. Under the terms of the contract modification, Integral Systems will continue to provide the USAF and SMC with its EPOCH Integrated Product Suite (IPS) to simplify operations by consolidating satellite ground systems.
The contract modification includes software development, installation and test support for Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) telemetry and orbital analysis enhancements. Additionally, the modification provides on-site support for remaining Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) exercises and launches.
"The modification provides both hardware and software upgrades to the WGS environment supporting Block II WGS Air Force operations," said Larry Lind, CCS-C Senior Program Manager. "These upgrades will ensure CCS-C's operational readiness to support the WGS program."
The CCS-C contract, first awarded in early 2002, enables a unified Command and Control (C2) capability for the 50th Space Wing's complete family of MILSATCOM satellite programs. By employing standards-based systems and an open architecture approach, the 50th Space Wing efficiently and cost-effectively supports future satellite platforms and programs.
ABOUT COMMAND AND CONTROL SYSTEM–CONSOLIDATED (CCS-C)
CCS-C is currently configured to support MILSATCOM satellites across four systems: the Defense Satellite Communications System (DSCS); Milstar; Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS); and the AEHF system. CCS-C consists of high-specification, commercially-available computer servers and workstations running commercially-available TT&C software packages on a local area network-based client/server architecture.
CCS-C products are operational at the Air Education and Training Command, 533rd Training Squadron at Vandenberg AFB, Ca; the 14th Air Force, 50th Space Wing, and the 3rd and 4th Space Operations Squadrons at Schriever AFB, Co.
