(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) LANHAM, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- a.i. solutions has been awarded a contract to provide the company's FreeFlyer software to support the Department of Defense's Joint Space Operations Center (JSpOC) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

FreeFlyer will support the JSpOC Mission System (JMS) program to provide Space Situational Awareness (SSA) capabilities. FreeFlyer was chosen by the JMS Program Office for its unique ability to solve complex astrodynamics problems as well as its flexibility to integrate into the existing JMS Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The GSA contract was awarded by the Air Force Space & Missile Systems Center / Space Superiority Systems Directorate (SMC/SY).

"Our FreeFlyer software will play a vital role in helping the Air Force design and execute successful missions in an increasingly congested space environment," said Bob Sperling, President and CEO of a.i. solutions. "The ability of FreeFlyer to integrate with both legacy and future operational systems makes it an ideal fit for the modernization of the JSpOC." FreeFlyer is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software for space mission design, analysis, and operations. It is used extensively by the U.S. Air Force, NASA, and other military, civil, commercial, and international organizations to support all phases of the space mission life cycle. Developed by a.i. solutions in 1996, FreeFlyer has successfully supported more than 225 space missions and is integrated into more than 20 operational satellite ground systems.
