BOULDER, Colo. Ball Aerospace, teamed with Booz Allen Hamilton, has won a contract by the Space Rapid Capabilities Office (SpRCO) to serve as the prime system integrator for the SpRCO Ground Command, Control, and Communications (GC3) system. 

GC3 will integrate into and aim to help enable the larger tactical command and control enterprise for the U.S. Space Force.

The program will aim to develop and deliver updated and enhanced satellite operations capabilities that intended to enable continuous modernization by maximizing automation, flexibility, and commonality. 

Key to the system's flexibility will be the utilization of Hexicon, a modular, open, and scalable event driven software architecture that allows for rapid integration of new software and overall increased system resiliency, according to officials.
