LOS ANGELES AFB, Calif., 21 June 2005. Engineers from the Lockheed Martin Corp. Integrated Systems and Solutions division in Gaithersburg, Md., are set to design computers and software for U.S. Air Force space operations.

Lockheed Martin won an $18.1 million contract modification June 15 to provide range-safety functions such as telemetry processing, as well as debris and hazard analysis processing, at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, Calif.

The work, which is for the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, also includes metric data processing, acquisition data processing, pre-mission flight analysis, and command and flight destruct processing.

A common hardware and software baseline will enable common processes, procedures, and training, Air Force officials say. Work is to be finished by November 2007. The contract number is F04701-95-C-0029, P00194.
