General Dynamics Finishes Work on NASA Ground System's Increment A4; Manny Mora Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

general-dynamics-logo2A General Dynamics-led consortium has helped NASA integrate, test and deploy antenna and related control systems for the agency’s Space Network Ground Segment Sustainment infrastructure.

The consortium also demonstrated how the SGSS Increment A4 would operate with a tracking and data relay system satellite in a simulation, General Dynamics said Monday.

“This milestone, combined with program achievements earlier this year, means that more than 80 percent of the new software needed to bring SGSS on line in 2017 is complete,” said Manny Mora, vice president and general manager for space and intelligent systems at General Dynamics’ mission systems business.

According to the company, the infrastructure is being modernized to facilitate space-to-ground telecommunication and monitoring of NASA missions in Earth orbit or near Earth.

The agency aims to build two ground terminals at the White Sands Complex in New Mexico, one station in Guam and another in Blossom Point, Maryland, through the SGSS modernization effort.

General Dynamics’ partners on the Goddard Space Flight Center-run project are Harris, MetiSpace Technologies, Rincon Research, a.i. Solutions, RT Logic and Qwaltec.
