Thursday, July 30, 2015

Source: Forecast International

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Dear Client,

The Net Centricity program is a United States Department of Defense research and development effort. The program conducts information management and information technology activities focused on the development, integration, testing, and assessment of capabilities and applications supporting joint and coalition warfighter needs. Program resources support net-centric collaborative development and operations to improve situational awareness, interoperability, and operational planning efforts. Forecast International estimates that the Pentagon will invest approximately $195 million on its Net Centricity program over the next ten years. The U.S. DoD's desire to execute wars in a network-centric manner is driving this projected funding stream. In FY16, look for the GIG-EF & EW SE project to continue analysis of waveform development and management in the DoD.

The Net Centricity program performs information management and information technology activities focused on the development, integration, testing, and appraisal of capabilities and applications in support of U.S. joint and coalition warfighter needs.

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

AURORA, Colo. - Raytheon has installed the first operational hardware for the Global Positioning System's Next Generation Operational Control System, known as GPS OCX. The new ground command and control system will modernize U.S. GPS capabilities and manage the next generation of GPS satellites. Installation of the Launch and Checkout System (LCS) hardware was completed in early July at Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado, the eventual home for the new GPS OCX Master Control Station.

"Installation of the initial OCX hardware at Schriever AFB represents a key milestone for the program, demonstrating further progress toward next year's acceptance of the OCX Launch and Checkout System for the GPS III satellites," said Matt Gilligan, vice president of Navigation and Environmental Solutions at Raytheon Intelligence, Information and Services. "Raytheon is committed to delivering a modernized, secure GPS ground system to support the millions of U.S. military, civil and commercial users of GPS worldwide," added Gilligan.

According to Raytheon, GPS OCX will deliver a host of new capabilities, including automation for operational efficiencies, improved accuracy, interoperability with geo-positioning and navigation systems of other nations for better global coverage, and a cybersecurity architecture that provides unprecedented levels of protection. The Launch and Checkout System delivers a large subset of the full OCX ground system capabilities, and establishes the OCX cyber-hardened infrastructure for additional mission applications that will be added to complete the Block 1 capability.
