Satellite Servicing and Proximity Ops
We support a NASA robotic spacecraft that is equipped with the tools, technologies, and techniques to extend the lifespan of satellites—even if they were not designed to be serviced in orbit. These same technologies can be applied to other proximity domain missions.
Parker Solar Probe
NASA’s Parker Solar Probe helped make history—before this project, no man-made object had ever visited the Sun. SAIC was part of the independent verification and validation team that ensured this complex spacecraft could approach the Sun without burning up in the intense solar heat.
We perform systems engineering and integration for the Global Positioning Satellite program, supporting the building and launch of GPS space vehicles (SV), updating the control segment that talks to the SVs, and integrating new military user equipment.
Our systems engineering and integration experts were instrumental in the successful operations acceptance of the next-generation OPIR ground system: SBIRS Block 10. This delivery culminated a 20-year endeavor, achieving COCOM system acceptance.
International Space Station
We have delivered systems engineering and verification and validation in support of the International Space Station for more than 23 years. We have supported everything from assembly to continuous operations. We currently ensure the safety of our astronauts with our engineering, from onboard life-support to space suits.
Climate and Weather Modeling
SAIC provides the technical support needed to develop, document, and maintain the climate-measuring infrastructure of NOAA’s information network. We helped the organization evaluate its strengths and weaknesses in climate prediction.
Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles
We have developed a quick reaction analysis tool suite to evaluate ICBM threats and concept exploration. We are also performing systems engineering and integration and testing for current ICBM systems.
We modeled space sensor augmentation to address hypersonic threats, supporting technology advancement of defense systems, offensive weapons, and sensors.
Our teams in Houston and Huntsville perform software safety and mission assurance for NASA’s Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System.
