Kratos Defense and Security Solutions has completed the second phase of a nearly three-year, four-phase study that aimed to migrate a military satellite communications ground system to the U.S. Air Force's Enterprise Ground Services architecture.
The company said Wednesday it offered its EPOCH telemetry and command server and TAO-DSI platform, among other things, to automate data sources and deployment concepts and support schedule creation over the EGS message bus, as well as provide cloud services, such as Catapult and Webic, for the study.
The service intends to transfer the Command and Control Systems-Consolidated's oversight of more than 20 milsatcom satellites to the EGS ground system to help the Air Force Space Command win battles in space.
“The transition from stovepiped ground systems to horizontally integrated architectures will optimize resources across space missions, enabling greater resiliency,“ said Larry Lind, vice president of Kratos Federal Solutions Group.
He added that the firm actively contributes to the EGS effort, extending its role beyond the CCS-C/EGS study.
Kratos completed the first phase of the ground system migration effort in February.
