Springfield, Va., August 25, 2023

ENSCO Inc. is excited to be part of the Space Systems Command’s (SSC) $57 million award of the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC, now Space Systems Command) Technical Support (STS) 3rd Follow-on (STS-3) Battle Management Command, Control & Communications (BMC3) Sustainment (BCS) contract. Under this contract, announced Feb. 6, 2023, ENSCO will serve as the majority contractor to the prime, Modern Technology Solutions Inc., (MTSI) along with teammates Linquest and Radiance.

With over three decades of support to the SMC/SSC missions, ENSCO was able to drive the winning strategy for MTSI in this critical pursuit. The contract will ensure technical and acquisition support to the Satellite Control Network (SCN) mission of providing highly reliable telemetry, tracking, command, communication, and control (TT&C3) for more than 170 Department of Defense (DoD), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), civil and allied satellites.

The BCS customers’ focus is to integrate new systems and services into the SCN, gain support for new and on-going efforts in all phases of the acquisition life cycle, and develop and utilize engineering technical services to drive success for the BCS Program Executive Office (PEO). The work will be performed at Peterson Space Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado and at seven SCN sites around the world.

ENSCO’s Mission Systems Group (MSG) values the opportunity to continue providing the mission-focused support that was highly recognized under the RN SE&I contract. They look forward to expanding on that support through the contract’s expected completion on April 30, 2028.

“The ENSCO team’s passion for this mission will continue to show through over the next five years on the STS-3 contract,” said Selenda Grimes, STS-3 BCS Program Manager at ENSCO.
