Horgen, Chief Executive Officer of Nichols Research Corporation (NRC) announced today that NRC was recently awarded a $10M contract by the Naval Command Control and Ocean Surveillance Center RDTE
Division (NRaD) to operate and maintain the Innovative Science and Technology Experimentation Facility (ISTEF) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
To mitigate this lack of funds to handle emergent requirements, we requested RDTE funding through the Office of Naval Research's Rapid Technical Transition (RTT) process, to begin integrating AIS information into the Global Command and Control System (GCCS) family of systems.
We considered our integrated AIS capability, developed using the RTT RDTE based on rapid requirements creep, to be an 80 percent solution for the fleet.
