Integral Systems... An EPOCH Decision By The USAF (MILSATCOM)

[SatNews] The U.S. Air Force (USAF) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) has awarded Integral Systems a $14.2M 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 through the consolidation of satellite ground systems.

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. Through the use of standards-based systems and an open architecture approach, the 50th Space Wing efficiently and cost-effectively supports future satellite platforms and programs. The contract modification provides an extension of the AEHF development contract. The extension is to provide contract coverage to account for launches of AEHF SVs 1-3 through 2012.
