BAE Systems has been chosen by the Space Systems Command (SSC) Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) to provide a prototype ground system for the US Space Force’s SSC Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution Command and Control (FORGE C2) project.

The system will provide command and control capabilities for Next-Generation Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) GEO (NGG) and Next-Generation OPIR Polar (NGP) systems, as well as enable the transition of the legacy Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) assets.

The FORGE C2 project aims to evolve the current ground architecture, integrating functionality such as telemetry, tracking, command, flight dynamics, mission management, and ground resource management into a consolidated framework.
