Integral Systems, Inc. has signed a contract with Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems to expand JSAT Corporation's existing EPOCH IPS (Integrated Product Suite)-based ground system to support their new JCSAT-12 satellite, a Lockheed Martin A2100AX spacecraft planned for launch in 2009.

This upgrade extends the existing EPOCH ground system, originally delivered to support JCSAT-9, -10, and -11, to support JCSAT-12 as part of an integrated, comprehensive system.

The contract includes all telemetry and command processing, display, ranging, flight dynamics, and equipment status and control to enable JSAT to safely and effectively operate JCSAT-12.

Integral's past performance, industry leading software products, including both EPOCH IPS and COMPASS Network Manager from Newpoint Technologies (an Integral subsidiary), and the ease with which the current system can be expanded to support JCSAT-12 were key aspects of this contract award.

"We are extremely pleased to once again be working with LMCSS and JSAT, and look forward to building on the success of the previous JSAT programs," said James Kramer, Vice President of Commercial Programs at Integral Systems.

"JSAT and LMCSS are both industry leaders, and we appreciate that they have both repeatedly selected Integral and our EPOCH IPS-based solutions for their satellites."

"It's comforting to be working with a known partner on such an important project," said Rick Smith, Director of Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems Supply Chain Management.

"Providing a perfect satellite to our customers is always the mission at LMCSS, and having proven solutions for tough requirements, ensures that our team will put its best efforts forward to serve our JSAT customer."
