Global positioning system ground control segment for air force


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Northrop Grumman
: 30 May, 2008  (New Product)
Northrop Grumman Corporation recently completed the system requirements review for the U.S. Air Force Next-Generation Global Positioning System (GPS) Ground
Control Segment (OCX).
GPS OCX is intended to revolutionize the operations concept for
command and control of existing GPS II and future GPS III satellites.
OCX will deliver new GPS mission planning, constellation management,
ground antenna, monitoring station, and satellite command and control
capabilities.
'Our system requirements review provided concrete evidence of
how the Air Force is applying its back-to-basics approach to the OCX
program with acquisition rigor at its core. Being focused on and fully
committed to the customer allowed our team to conduct the requirements
review to a tough, new standard that demanded comprehensive evidence of
processes, analysis, and documentation,' said Steve Bergjans, GPS OCX
vice president and program manager for Northrop Grumman. 'I was very
pleased with the quality of our products and presentation, as well as
the feedback we received from the GPS Wing team. Our team's thorough
preparation for the review helps build the requirements and process
foundation essential to a successful OCX program.'
Bergjans added that the completion of the review is a shared
accomplishment of Northrop Grumman; Harris Corporation, Melbourne,
Fla.; Integral Systems Inc., Lanham, Md.; Infinity Systems Engineering,
Colorado Springs, Colo.; and the newest teammate, Lockheed Martin
Information Systems and Global Services, Gaithersburg, Md.
Under the 18-month contract, Northrop Grumman's Team OCX will
provide systems engineering and integration; architecture design;
communications and network engineering; information assurance and
security; modeling and simulation; network management; software
development; support, maintenance and implementation; and test and
evaluation.
