United States : RT LOGIC bags $1 MILLION follow-on contract for GPS OCX Ground System

August 12, 2014

RT Logic, a subsidiary of Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc, declared that it has secured $1 million follow-on contract for the provision of ground system components for the USAF GPS OCX program.

With this latest contract, the RT Logic s total OCX contract awards now raise to over $4 million.

RT Logic supports Raytheon, the prime contractor for GPS OCX, with RT Logic s net-centric software products for C2 of the GPS III satellites using next generation IP cryptosystems. The IP cryptosystems use industry-standard IP interfaces, eliminating the need for custom serial interfaces, which is intended to ease integration challenges, improve reliability, lower transition risk, and reduce cost.

Raytheon with RT Logic s software-based products will be able to add new features to meet evolving requirements as needed.

The company said that beside this, RT Logic will establish a high-fidelity lab environment that simulates the GPS mission string. This lab system will allow Raytheon to cost-effectively resolve issues, integrate and simulate new functionality, and maintain the system without impacting the operational mission or Raytheon s regression testing schedules.

OCX is the next generation GPS ground system designed to bring flexibility, adaptability, and modularity to the position, navigation, and timing (PNT) mission. RT Logic is the primary equipment supplier for the Command and Control (C2) portion of OCX, providing software front-end processor units and Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) gateways.
