Integral Systems... RAIDRS Ramp Up (MILSATCOM)
The United States Air Force (USAF) has awarded Integral Systems, Inc., (Nasdaq:ISYS) a contract valued at $6.99 million for construction of the first two deployment sites for the Rapid Attack Identification, Detection and Reporting System (RAIDRS) Block 10 (RB-10) program. The contract also includes funding to design a third deployment site. "The new contract is a significant milestone for the program as we now begin site construction as a prelude to site deployment of RAIDRS," said David Conway, Integral Systems' RAIDRS Program Manager. "The close teaming relationship between the Space and Missile Systems Center and the Integral Systems' RAIDRS team was essential to meeting the USAF's stringent requirements." Integral Systems is the RAIDRS RB-10 program prime contractor. RAIDRS is a ground-based defensive counterspace program. The system will provide near real‐time event detection, characterization, geolocation and Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) reporting for critical satellite communications systems, directly supporting combatant commanders. RB-10 uses proven, Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) hardware and software components from Integral Systems, as well as products from its family of companies, including RT Logic, SAT Corporation and Newpoint Technologies. RT Logic is providing its Telemetrix® Sentinel products for signal processing, SAT Corporation is providing its Monics® Satellite Carrier Monitoring and Interference Detection and Geolocation system and Newpoint Technologies is providing its COMPASS Network Management System (NMS).
