Telesat Picks Integral Systems for SkyTerra Satellite Command and Control
Integral’s EPOCH IPS Software Now Supports 16 Boeing 702 Satellite Programs
In addition to providing command and control software for SkyTerra satellites, Integral Systems is implementing a complete set of executable operating procedures for the satellite bus based on Boeing’s Recommended Operating Procedures. These automated procedures are implemented using Integral Systems’ Automated Real-Time Execution Suite (ARES) procedure platform that delivers the capability to rapidly develop and execute complex spacecraft command procedures.
Telesat’s experienced operations staff will develop payload procedures and perform validation of the bus and payload procedures to ensure operational readiness. Telesat will assume operational control of the SkyTerra satellites at completion of in-orbit testing.
“Telesat is an industry leader in satellite services and space operations and we are pleased to build on the 13 year partnership between our two companies by providing both the ground system and executable ARES satellite procedures for SkyTerra’s satellites,” said
“The existing capability of EPOCH IPS to Boeing 702 satellite operations is unrivaled. Integral’s technical capability to support development of satellite bus operating procedures and custom interfaces to the SkyTerra ground systems combined with Telesat’s operational expertise to develop the payload procedures and to perform system validation will allow Telesat to provide a reliable and cost effective solution for SkyTerra,” said
