BAE Systems to Develop Ground System Prototype for U.S. Space Force

BAE Systems has been selected by the Space Systems Command (SSC) Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) to provide a prototype ground system for the U.S. Space Force’s SSC Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution Command and Control (FORGE C2) project.
The goal of the FORGE C2 effort is to evolve the current ground architecture, leveraging newer technologies and architecture approaches. BAE Systems will integrate proven capabilities into a prototype ground system that will allow the Space Force to provide command and control capabilities for Next-Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) GEO (NGG) and Next-Generation OPIR Polar (NGP) systems as well as enabling the transition of the legacy Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) assets. FORGE C2 will integrate functionality such as telemetry, tracking, command, flight dynamics, mission management and ground resource management into a consolidated framework. 
BAE Systems was one of four companies chosen to participate in Phase 1 of the project, which is focused on integrating and demonstrating prototype capabilities. Once completed, one or more designs will be chosen for further development and testing in support of the first Next-Generation OPIR polar satellite launch, which is currently scheduled for 2028.
