Exton, PA (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI), the producer of commercial modeling and analysis software for the space, defense and intelligence communities, has been awarded a modification to its existing GSA delivery order contract from the U.S. Air Force Space & Missile Systems Center (SMC)/Space Superiority Systems Directorate (SY) to provide selected capabilities from its Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Software Suite to the Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) Mission System (JMS) program. The projected contract value for AGI selected software and maintenance is $39M through 2018. The JSpOC Mission System will replace the legacy Space Defense Operations Center (SPADOC) system and is designed to deliver integrated, net-centric Space Situational Awareness and Space Command & Control (C2) capability.
This contract modification consists of an operational software upgrade of selected capabilities from the initial prototype contract awarded in November 2012 and an engineering services task order to support the future integration, testing and deployment of select AGI SSA Software Suite capabilities into the JMS program. Selected AGI SSA Software Suite commercial products will be integrated as part of the JMS program Increment 2 delivery of capabilities.
AGI’s SSA Software Suite brings proven, accredited, modular software to JMS which is expected to reduce the program’s cost and schedule, providing commercially derived contributions to mission capabilities and performance. The SSA Software Suite is compatible with the JMS service-oriented architecture (SOA) and provides mission applications for catalog maintenance, including orbit determination, observation and maneuver processing, sensor calibration and additional mission capabilities critical to the JMS program. This open-architecture solution is delivered in a SOA designed for scalability and reliability, and integrated with a database that enables secure operations and web-based user interactions.
“We are incredibly excited to bring our advanced SSA software capabilities to National Security Space operations via the JMS program. We look forward to working closely with the Air Force and the rest of the JMS team to ensure the success of this critical program and to deliver these urgently needed capabilities to the warfighter quickly and affordably by leveraging commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products,” says Travis Langster, AGI vice president.
AGI software has been used since 1994 by U.S. national security organizations working in the SSA domain. Learn more at http://www.agi.com/ssa.
