The US Air Force (USAF) Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) has awarded Integral Systems a contract modification to its command and control system-consolidated (CCS-C) contract.

Under the terms of the $13.7m 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 extends CCS-C system sustainment, hardware maintenance, software maintenance and operations support into 2011, and establishes a new option CLIN for continuing CCS-C system sustainment through 2012.

Integral Systems CCS-C senior programme manager Larry Lind said the company would ensure CCS-C’s operational readiness to execute the MilSatCom programme mission.

The CCS-C contract enables a unified command and control (C2) capability for the 50th Space Wing’s complete family of MilSatCom satellite programmes.
