Lockheed To Keep Supporting Jspoc Enhancement Activity

by

Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions will continue supporting the U.S. Defense Department’s Joint Space Operations Center (Jspoc) under a $14.4 million contract modification awarded by the U.S. Air Force, the Pentagon announced Aug. 23.

Under the cost-plus-award-fee contract, Lockheed Martin will complete multiple efforts to “enhance net-centric access to space situational awareness data” at the Jspoc. Located at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., the Jspoc is the nerve center for U.S. military space operations, providing situational awareness, space traffic management and launch support.

The modification brings the total value of the contract to $37.4 million, the Pentagon said. The work is expected to be completed by Sept. 8, 2015.
