Satellite ground systems manufacturer Integral Systems is opening an office in Britain as part of a broader strategy of steering current and prospective customers toward using Integral’s full suite of satellite control, network management, carrier monitoring and interference-location technologies.
A package of services and products called Earth Stations Integrated Solutions (ESIS) has been assembled in an attempt to attract satellite operators to a one-stop-shop relationship with Columbia, Md.-based Integral, which recently changed its management following what some shareholders viewed as financial underperformance.
H. Marshal Ward, a former BAE Systems vice president and a retired U.S. Air Force major general hired in late August as Integral’s chief operating officer, said Integral’s new management team will attempt to bring “better alignment between the many capabilities” under Integral’s roof. “We have all the raw materials and talent already,” Ward said in a Nov. 2 interview.
ESIS is one way to offer Integral’s EPOCH IPS satellite control products together with products and services from Integral subsidiaries RT Logic, SAT Corp. and Newpoint Technologies as a single package.
