Exelis to add data tech into legacy command system

System will significantly improve data retrieval and verification

ITT Exelis has won a $6.1 million contract modification with the U.S. Air Force to insert a modern data storage and memory technology system into the Strategic Automated Command Control System.

The system provides orders and pass codes authentication for Air Force nuclear weapons platforms, bombers and support units, the company said in a release.

ITT Exelis will insert a modern data storage system that will improve retrieval and verification of critical data for decision makers, the company said.
