This company has been awarded an 18 Million euro contract by OHB System AG to deliver the ground station control and communications infrastructure for the German national satellite-communications mission.
SCISYS PLC ("SCISYS"), the supplier of custom software systems, IT-based solutions and support services to the space, media and broadcast, government, defense and commerce sectors, announces it has been awarded an 18 Million euro contract by OHB System AG to deliver the ground station control and communications infrastructure for the German national satellite-communications mission, Heinrich Hertz, as prime contractor. The project will commence in 2017 and the majority of project revenues will be delivered between 2018 and the scheduled completion date in 2021.
SCISYS Space will deliver the Heinrich Hertz ground station control and communications infrastructure incorporating our proprietary PLENITER® software suite for the planning, implementation, control and operation of complete satellite missions.
One key advantage of the solution is that it offers the potential, where needed, to provide reliable automation technology that complements the conventional, non-automated system elements. This may help make future operations more efficient.
Dr. Horst Wulf, Divisional Director of SCISYS Space, said that this great success reflects the outstanding work of SCISYS Space as a partner in the ground segment of many key national and international space missions. Consequently they are now taking a step-change from a subsystem supplier role to being the prime contractor for the full ground segment of an important national space mission. Their state-of-the-art software solution will combine both reliable automation technologies and non-automated software elements.
Klaus Heidrich, CEO of SCISYS, added that he is delighted to announce this exceptional win by their Space division. It underscores that their growth strategy in this domain is bearing fruit not the least because of the proprietary PLENITER® product. His congratulations go out to the entire management and team in their Space division who have been working on this opportunity to finally secure this great success.
