U.S. Space Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center has awarded Altamira Technologies a prototype project contract valued at $8.5 million for the Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution, or FORGE, Mission Data Processing Applications Provider.
Located within the Cross-Mission Ground and Communications Enterprise, the FORGE program office leads modernization for the nation’s missile warning ground systems for both next-generation and legacy programs.
The contract was awarded by the Space Enterprise Consortium using an agile program management methodology to rapidly develop a prototype that can be transitioned directly into operational use.
“Altamira looks forward to supporting the development of this critical new mission processing capability for the Space Force,” said Blaine Worthington, Altamira chief operating officer. “We are excited to have the opportunity to leverage our core capabilities and experience to further serve this important national space mission area.”
The prototype project award has a 1-year period of performance, which will be followed by a proposal phase and the down-select for the operational system. Altamira is teamed with Lockheed Martin, Stratagem, Toyon, CACI and Spire Digital on this effort.
