Raytheon: GPS OCX Project on Track, Within Budget

By | February 10, 2009 | Military

A team led by Raytheon Co. completed a segment design review and modernized capability engineering for the U.S. Air Force‘s next-generation GPS control segment (GPS OCX).
    Working under a $160 million Phase A system design and risk reduction contract, Raytheon said the two milestones, reached in December, will keep the program on track, within budget and on schedule. The Raytheon-led team demonstrated the ability to command modernized GPS signals, provide situational awareness and expose data on the network through the modernized capability engineering model demonstration.
     "These mark major accomplishments for our entire team and significantly burn-down the execution risk on the program," Bob Canty, Raytheon GPS OCX vice president and program manager, said in a statement.
