Who We Are Integral Systems builds satellite ground systems for command and control, integration and test, data processing, and simulation. We’ve provided ground systems for more than 120 different satellite missions for communications, science, meteorology and Earth resource applications. Our domestic and International customers include government and commercial satellite operators, spacecraft and payload manufacturers, and aerospace systems integrators. We develop innovative software products that reduce the cost and minimize the development risk associated with traditional, custom-built systems. We were the first to offer a comprehensive commercial-off-the-shelf software product line for command and control. We use these products to provide satellite control facilities that can operate multiple satellites from any manufacturer. Through our wholly owned subsidiaries, Integral Systems offers systems and software for satellite and terrestrial communications signal monitoring. In 2001, Integral Systems formed a wholly owned European subsidiary, Integral Systems Europe S.A.S., with headquarters in Toulouse, France. Integral Systems has more than 230 employees working at company headquarters in Lanham, Md., and at other locations in the U.S. and Europe.
In many ways, your satellite ground system is as important as your satellite. Your ground system tracks and controls your satellite, and processes and analyzes the information it gathers. No company understands this concept better than Integral Systems, Inc. Our ConceptOur Focus Integral Systems focuses on providing System solutions for satellite command and control, payload data processing, simulation, satellite integration and testing, and flight software validation. As an independent systems integrator, Integral Systems builds more ground systems for a greater variety of satellites than any other company on Earth. Our Success It’s simple really. Our experience with satellite systems and operations, computer software and hardware, engineering/ mathematical analysis, and end-user applications is unsurpassed. Extensive experience and innovative thinking enable us to construct ground systems that exceed traditional performance, cost, and schedule expectations, while mitigating program risk.
Our customer base includes essentially every Government, commercial, U.S. and international space-related organization.... just to name a few! We’re Global The competitive nature of the communications business has driven satellite operators to improve service and reduce costs. Our EPOCH IPS product line has put us at the forefront of this arena, replacing large, antiquated satellite control centers with smaller systems that can fly multiple satellites from any manufacturer.
Our EPOCH IPS system is compatible with every commercial communications satellite bus in the industry, allowing operators to use a single system to operate diverse satellite fleets from various manufacturers. Our customers can focus their talents on their numerous satellites, rather than on numerous ground systems. Our customers are secure in the knowledge that whatever satellite they choose next to expand their fleet, their ground system already can operate it. It’s no wonder that EPOCH IPS has become the industry standard for communications satellite control and operations. The Standard
Integrated Automation Automated Trend Reports Plot Generation Triggers Capability Batch Mode Dynamics Automated Payload Configuration Integral Systems has, by far, the world’s largest market share in commercial communication applications – over 50% of the market, and growing. Significant procurement, training, operations, and maintenance cost reductions have been realized by our customers using a single EPOCH IPS system to operate all of their satellites. To commercial satellite operators, one thing matters: the bottom line. Satellite organizations are being asked to fly larger fleets of more diverse satellites with fewer people and resources. The solution to this dilemma is automation. EPOCH IPS enables our customers to reduce their operations costs, while monitoring and controlling their satellites. CommercialAutomation
Integral Systems is more than a COTS provider. In fact, over 50% of our business is focused on satisfying the unique requirements of our Government satellite control customers. These customers include the U.S. Air Force, NOAA, NASA, Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Integral Systems provides the full services of a prime contractor, in addition to supplying our commercial COTS products. We deploy mission- specific systems built to Government specifications for the entire range of space applications, including satellite simulation, planning and scheduling, and payload data processing.
