Braxton and Enterprise Ground Services (EGS)

August 2018

Enterprise Ground Services (EGS) is an initiative of the Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) to standardize the operations of their Space Mission Enterprise within a modular open systems architecture.  EGS consists of infrastructure, services, and standards used by AFSPC Programs to evolve stove-piped ground components into a common Enterprise Ground enabled set of Satellite Operations Centers.

EGS is split between core capabilities that are shared throughout the Space Mission Enterprise and Mission Unique Solutions that use those core capabilities.  The core capabilities within EGS are predominantly managed by the NRL’s Government product, Neptune Ground Resource Manager (GRM). Neptune software is maintained by Braxton’s sister company, Space Ground System Solutions, Inc. (SGSS).  Mission unique capabilities include satellite telemetry, tracking & commanding (TT&C), mission planning, and flight dynamics. 

Braxton works with the Government and other partners to deliver the EGS Ground Support Equipment (GSE) and mission unique capabilities for all new satellite programs.  This includes  Front End Processors, Simulation, and Optimization.  Braxton is procuring, assembling, integrating, and delivering operational EGS infrastructure, leveraging our rich spacecraft ground system heritage and in-depth knowledge with both Neptune and COTS products.  This combined offering enables Braxton to accelerate delivery of enterprise class ground solutions at a fraction of the cost.

Braxton Technologies Attends SmallSat 2018 with a New Booth Location in the Fieldhouse

August 2018

Braxton Technologies, LLC, frequently travels around the country to conferences and trade shows that specialize in the satellite domain.  One of the staples on our travel schedule is the SmallSat conference held at Utah State University in Logan, UT every year.  This conference, now in its 32nd year, has grown significantly every year, indicating the immense interest the space community has taken in small satellites in recent years.  When it first began, there was a small contingent of companies and universities in attendance, numbering in the hundreds.  In the past year, there was such an increase in the popularity of this event that a second, larger exhibit hall was opened up for additional booths to accommodate the thousands of conference participants.

Braxton was proud to display our booth in the Fieldhouse and demonstrate our Enterprise Class Scheduling and Resource Optimization tool, called AceIRO, and our EGS Automated Operations and Common Simulation Environment (AceCP and AceSIM) products.  If you are interested in hearing more about our products and capabilities, please contact us here.
