Exelis has been awarded a $10.3 million sole source U.S. Air Force contract to insert a modern data storage and retrieval technology into the Strategic Automated Command Control System (SACCS).
The SACCS provides orders and pass codes authentication for Air Force nuclear weapons platforms, bombers, and support units. Inserting a modern data storage system into this legacy command and control system will dramatically improve retrieval and verification of critical data for decision-makers. The upgrade by Exelis, a leading provider of critical network solutions, will also allow the existing system to continue with uninterrupted service through 2030.
The replacement of the current data archival system with modern data storage will ensure operational performance of the system and reduce the potential for human error factors in the future.
"We understand the importance of this system to the Air Force, the Department of Defense, and our nation's security," said Jennifer Schoonover, the vice president and general manager of the Exelis communications solutions business area. "We were the original integrators of this system 30 years ago and have worked to maintain a strong relationship with our Air Force customer since then. We will continue to deliver this technically sound and affordable technology for this critical Air Force network."
