Kratos Completes First Milestone In Critical Deployment Study for Air Force Spacecraft Enterprise Ground Services (EGS)
EGS is an enabler for the Air Force's Space Enterprise Vision (SEV), designed to support a sustainable, resilient space architecture that can respond to threats and protect space-based assets. EGS will result in a more resilient, cost-effective ground architecture that is more robust, provides for enhanced space situational awareness (SSA) and will integrate with the Air Force's Enterprise Space Battle Management Command and Control system (BMC2) now being developed. Two other SEV components focus on a new, more resilient space architecture and a more responsive satellite launch capability.
