Frontier Technology secures R2C2 contract from Space Rapid Capabilities Office

On June 14, Beavercreek, OH-based Frontier Technology Inc. (FTI) announced that it was one of 20 companies selected by the Space Rapid Capabilities Office (Space RCO) to compete for work under the Rapid Resilient Command and Control (R2C2) indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to assist in the development of a next-generation ground software system for military satellites.

The R2C2 IDIQ was competed as a small business set-aside and seeks to build a ground system on a commercial cloud architecture to support dynamic space operations missions. Through this IDIQ contract, Space RCO will compete and issue task orders for software tools and infrastructure designed to enable Space Force operators to reposition satellites and perform other operations in a more agile manner. A Space RCO spokesperson said the Combined Program Office will procure software systems in “bite-sized” pieces and expects to award the initial task orders in the next few months.

“FTI is proud to be a U.S. Space Force mission partner and we are honored to continue providing our technology and expertise in data integration, data management and satellite ground systems to enhance U.S. space operations,” said Jose Hidalgo, FTI president.

FTI’s deep involvement with Space Force ground systems includes the integration of a vast array of data sources, including satellite command and control, communication networks, and various sensor systems. FTI’s integration capabilities eliminate information silos and enhance collaboration across different mission owners, helping generate and share valuable insights more rapidly.

FTI’s analytics capabilities provide crucial intelligence from complex data sets. Utilizing advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques, FTI’s analytics solutions harness the power of big data to identify patterns, predict outcomes and optimize resource allocation. These capabilities allow the Space Force to enhance operational efficiency, identify and respond quickly to potential threats, and drive innovation within the fast-evolving space sector.
