The System Engineering and Sustainment Integrator System includes ground-based radars, space surveillance sensors, ground-based missile warning, and optical systems operated by United States Strategic Command and Air Force Space Command. Command and control for these radar systems was written in multiple legacy languages, and needed transformation to modernized, refactored C++.
United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Integrated Strategic Planning & Analysis Network (ISPAN) uses a net-centric operational war construct to integrate data from space-based, ground-based, and airborne sensors to provide real-time global situational awareness, alerting commanders to potential threats.
The U.S. Navy contracted Digital Systems Resources (DSR) to modernize the Mission Computer Fault Isolation Program (MFIP) aboard the Navy's E-2C Hawkeye Airborne Early Warning aircraft. DSR, via a US Office of Naval Research (USONR) recommendation, contracted with TSRI to migrate MFIP's legacy Ada into modern C++.
The L-159 Advanced Light Weight Combat Aircraft (ALCA) is based on the proven airframe design and aerodynamic configuration of the L39 Albatross and L59 family of basic and advanced jet trainers. ALCA incorporates a high-performance military turbofan engine, advanced avionics and sensors. TSRI was asked to assist The Boeing Company in modernizing the ALCA Integrated Tactical Avionics Program (ITAP). ITAP, originally a real-time embedded J73 JOVIAL program, required transformation to modern C++.
The MILSATCOM Program Office under the Command and Control System Consolidation (CCS-C) program required replacement of the Air Force Satellite Control Network Command and Control Segment (SCNCCS). This J73 JOVIAL system was modernized to provide satellite control capabilities in support of the Air Force Space Command MILSATCOM satellite programs, including MILSTAR, DSCS III, NATO IV, SKYNET 4, Advanced Wideband Gapfiller, and Advanced EHF.
The Ballistic Missile Early Warning System (BMEWS) radar system provides intercontinental and sea-launched ballistic missile detection, early warning and attack assessment capabilities. These early warning radar systems were being upgraded to improve target detection and mid-course target tracking for the hit-to-kill Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (KEV) of the Missile Defense Agency's (MDA) ballistic missile defense (BMD).
Raytheon contracted with TSRI to modernize, refactor, and develop code-level documentation for the Global Positioning Navigation and Timing Systems (GPNTS) Navigation Sensor System Interface (NAVSSI) Replacement Project. These systems support combat, command and control, information and other mission critical capabilities.
One of the major integrators in the CANES competition contracted with TSRI to model and build application blueprints for the Aegis ACB-08 Ada and C++ software system to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a product line architecture approach for managing the software upgrade cycles as well as to reduce the cost of modernization of the Aegis software systems.
