Lockheed Martin Space Systems Corp. of Sunnyvale, California is being awarded a contract modification for $16,940,295. This effort is a change order that will modify the Mission Planning Element of the ground software of the Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite systems to accurately model and support current AEHF terminals and new AEHF terminals. This Mission Planning Element is the tool developed to model the Extremely High Frequency satellite communication plan. Additionally, this effort will also allow the Mission Planning Element to distribute transmission security keys for terminals using the Ultra High Frequency (UFO) Follow-On Enhanced Extremely High Frequency (E/EE) or Interim Polar satellite systems. Finally, two increments of the Mission Planning Element software being developed in parallel will be combined to create efficiencies to develop and maintain the software. The combination of the software increments will also mitigate the risk of incompatible planning tools between the United States and our International Partners in future coalition operations. At this time $8,470,148 has been obligated. For more information please call (310) 653-8011. Military Communications Satellite Wing PKA, 483 North Aviation Blvd, El Segundo, CA 90245-2808 is the contracting activity (FO4701-02-C-0002, P000258).
