Our focus is to provide our customers with practical state of the art solutions to complex communications, command, control and intelligence systems. We currently provide engineering services to the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in support of: spacecraft design, development, integration, and test; satellite pre-launch, launch and mission operations; network design, development, and administration; and terrestrial observation applications for naval field units.

System and software engineering services for the design and development of command, control, tasking, and monitoring of multiple space vehicles simultaneously. SGSS maintains and enhances command & control software currently used in U.S. Navy ground systems around the world that support more than 20 on-orbit satellites.

Ground System Features:

  • Infrastructure supports any system design
  • Provides a reusable base to assist Mission Unique Software development
  • Functionality reduces amount of Mission Unique Software required
  • Significantly reduces operation and maintenance costs
  • Applicable to full spacecraft life cycle

Design, development and field installations of real-time embedded systems to the Tactical Electronic Warfare Division of NRL for a suite of radar monitoring and measuring systems. These systems support critical fleet operations in a variety of configurations, and are constantly being improved to provide superior tactical visibility in hostile environments.

Contributing to miniaturization of the UYX-3 system using Ixthos CHAMP-AV computers and NRL developed A to D Converters:

  • Using Altivec technology in the PPC 7400 to provide real-time Digital Signal Processing in a smaller footprint
  • Embedded system orchestrates data handling and user control/status while allowing easy modification to accommodate improved processing techniques
  • Ongoing enhancements to Windows-based GUI continue to increase the value and utility of these systems to military personnel
