Ball Aerospace Completes IOTS Increment 2 In-Process Review

by Staff Writers
Dayton OH (SPX) Aug 17, 2007
Ball Aerospace and Technologies has completed the Increment 2 In-Process Review (IPR-2) for the Integrated Overhead Non-Imaging Infrared (ONIR) Tasking, Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (TPED) System (IOTS) development effort. IOTS is a program of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) that will provide capabilities to process and exploit existing and future ONIR sensor data.

It is an end-to-end integrated system for ingesting, archiving, processing, analyzing, and reporting data collected by current and future space-based infrared sensors.

The IPR-2 milestone included a demonstration of the end-to-end functionality of the IOTS within the Ball Aerospace Dayton, Ohio facility, with a focus on subsystem interface validation. Representatives from the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the Aerospace Corporation, and Riverside Research Institute concluded that the IPR-2 was successful.

The three-year IOTS development effort began May 25, 2005. Ball Aerospace is supported by Booz Allen and Hamilton, Inc., Command Technologies, Inc. (CTI), a subsidiary of MTC Technologies, Inc. (MTC), Northrop Grumman's Electronic Systems sector, Oracle Federal Systems (OFS), Raytheon Company (RTN), Structural Computing LLC, and Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC).
