SCISYS Awarded Flight Dynamics Operations Engineering Service with ESOC

SCISYS is pleased to announce that it has signed a one year extension to its contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to provide a Flight Dynamics Operations Engineering Service to the European Space Operations Centre ("ESOC") in Darmstadt, Germany, with CGI Germany GmbH & Co. KG as a subcontractor.

SCISYS engineers and flight dynamics experts are providing a service to the earth observation, science and astronomy missions operated by ESOC. The service encompasses attitude and orbit determination, command generation, mission analysis and planning, as well as software development, procedure generation and test and validation. These activities are core to spacecraft operations and are performed alongside European Space industry partners.

Dr. Horst Wulf, Divisional Director of Space for SCISYS, said:

"The extension to this contract cements the long-term partnership we have with ESA, where SCISYS has provided continuous support in this domain for more than two decades. Flight Dynamics and the related guidance, navigation and control area is a core capability within SCISYS, which feeds into our end-to-end ground segment offering."

Dr. Mike Love, Chairman of SCISYS said:

"We are delighted that ESA has extended its contract with SCISYS, which demonstrates our highly capable and competent engineers are adding value to an important and loyal customer of ours. The teaming with CGI also continues the trusted cooperation between the companies that has been established over many years in our Darmstadt business."
