Exelis wins $10.3M to upgrade Air Force command and control system

Exelis has won a $10.3 million sole source contract with the Air Force to insert a modern data storage and retrieval technology into the Strategic Automated Command and Control System (SACCS).

The SACCS provides orders and pass codes authentication for Air Force nuclear weapons platforms, bombers, and support units.

Inserting a modern data storage system into the legacy system will dramatically improve retrieval and verification of critical data for decision-makers and will ensure the system will be able to continue uninterrupted until 2030, Exelis said in a release.

Under the contract, the company will provide data drives, support equipment, training and documentation.
