ITT Exelis has been awarded a $6.1 million modification to a US Air Force contract to insert a modern data storage and memory 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 by Exelis into this legacy command and control system will dramatically improve retrieval and verification of critical data for decision-makers.

Exelis expects to complete the task, which will take the process through critical design review, within a nine-month period of performance with work which began in April. Exelis also provides modernized crypto and ongoing technical support services for the SACCS on contracts previously awarded by the Air Force.
