a.i. solutions Awarded Contract to Provide FreeFlyer(R) Software to DoD's Joint Space Operations Center
LANHAM, MD, Jan 16, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
a.i. solutions has been awarded a contract to provide the company's
FreeFlyer software to support the Department of Defense's Joint Space
Operations Center (JSpOC) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
FreeFlyer will support the JSpOC Mission System (JMS) program to
provide Space Situational Awareness (SSA) capabilities. FreeFlyer was
chosen by the JMS Program Office for its unique ability to solve
complex astrodynamics problems as well as its flexibility to
integrate into the existing JMS Service Oriented Architecture (SOA).
The GSA contract was awarded by the Air Force Space & Missile Systems
Center / Space Superiority Systems Directorate (SMC/SY).
"Our FreeFlyer software will play a vital role in helping the Air
Force design and execute successful missions in an increasingly
congested space environment," said Bob Sperling, President and CEO of
a.i. solutions. "The ability of FreeFlyer to integrate with both
legacy and future operational systems makes it an ideal fit for the
modernization of the JSpOC."
FreeFlyer is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software for space
mission design, analysis, and operations. It is used extensively by
the U.S. Air Force, NASA, and other military, civil, commercial, and
international organizations to support all phases of the space
mission life cycle. Developed by a.i. solutions in 1996, FreeFlyer
has successfully supported more than 225 space missions and is
integrated into more than 20 operational satellite ground systems.
