COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. and COLUMBIA, Md., April 5, 2011 (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 an $8.6 million 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 provides additional funding to develop software, databases, command procedures, Human Machine Interface screens and deliver a significant upgrade for the Contractor Development Laboratory supporting Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) #4 satellite.
"Integral Systems will provide both hardware and software upgrades to the command and control software to consolidate the satellite ground systems supporting USAF Block II WGS operations," said Larry Lind, Integral Systems' CCS-C Senior Program Manager. "After our success with WGS Block I satellites, we look forward to continued success with the WGS Block II satellites."
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 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, Calif., the 14th Air Force, 50th Space Wing and the 3rd and 4th Space Operations Squadrons at Schriever AFB, Colo.
