a.i. solutions... Dynamics Determination (Tech)

[SatNews] This new contract will assist LMC with their upgrade plans for NASA...

a.i. solutions has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin Corp. to support the upgrade of the NASA JSC Mission Control Center’s Core Trajectory Subsystem (CTS) using the a.i. solutions’ FreeFlyer® software.  The a.i. solutions contract has an initial value of $3.2 million with options for additional support and development. FreeFlyer is a commercial-off-the-shelf software application used widely in satellite mission analysis, design, and operations. FreeFlyer provides comprehensive flight dynamics functionality, including trajectory and maneuver planning, orbit determination, attitude modeling, and detailed coverage analysis. Because of its scalability and adaptability, FreeFlyer can be seamlessly integrated with the existing Johnson Mission Control Center software to preserve legacy functionality while providing a framework to infuse future capabilities and technologies. “FreeFlyer is designed to fit a wide range of mission requirements, making it ideally suited for modernizing the CTS at Johnson Space Center,” said Bob Sperling, President and CEO of a.i. solutions. “The CTS upgrade is the latest project over more than a decade of supporting NASA missions.”
