    Making Space Concepts A Reality

    STS Experts Have Supported Programs and Systems Such As: 

    STS personnel have real-world experience with terminal design, modem operations, and network planning. This experience includes commercial, DSCS, GBS, and WGS modems, terminals, and satellites. Our team has experience working with the Government engineering teams to define and collect the performance data needed to evaluate fielded terminal and modem performance to help address mission risks, and coordinated a solution that addressed knowledge and performance gaps.


    STS engineers authored a SATCOM Technical Data Handbook to encompass the 212 associated certified terminals. The last version of this type of handbook was created nearly two decades ago, and severely needed updated for SATCOM operations and terminal troubleshooting.  This document created fingertip access to certification status, terminal information, block diagrams, and trending information for planning, engineering/Integration, and operations.  A long-standing recognized need for improved knowledge management and job aids was fulfilled, without adversely impacting day to day operations.

    Rapid Results

    Transitioning programs quickly and effectively is imperative to continue operations. STS has extensive capability/experience and has been very successful phasing in new programs. STS had an extremely successful transition on the PARCS contract. Because the STS transition team worked, we were able to reduce critical elements of transition from two weeks to one week. Team STS was able to reduce the inventory from two weeks to one week, saving government funds and time for multiple individuals and allowed our team to rapidly assume our new Prime role to continue operations.

    Effective Team

    STS technicians develop and maintain accurate and timely test documentation for the purposes of weapon system trend analysis, target resolution tracking, validation and the maintenance of workload data. As part of our on-site operational ground system analysis, STS personnel identify and document all issues, vulnerabilities, or problems related to weapon system performance. Overall, our Subject Matter Experts on site are constantly improving the reliability and effectiveness of the radar systems while also maintaining site through thorough knowledge management strategies.

    Agile Support

    Being responsive in a 24x7Satellites Operations Center is critical to the mission. STS has continued to maintain 24/7/365 mission essential posture support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic at the PARCS site. STS has been innovative and conscientious in finding successful ways to circumvent adverse program impacts while maximizing system performance as demonstrated by the operational reliability of the weapon system. The effectives of our agility at PARCS is demonstrated by our availability contractor controlled averages exceeding quality requirements throughout the life of the contract.

    Lethal Capabilities

    STS has experience managing training and curriculum at the MAJCOM level. STS manages over 2,000 defenders annually. We worked to establish an electronic system to gather data to support all courses critiques. It was ultimately built in one week and covered all courses taught on site. This allowed our customer to gather critical information from each course that is taught to help enhance and make all courses stronger, and effectively training professionals provided a benefit to the Government.
