Our capabilities on this page:
Rapid Acquisition Support
Space Rapid Capabilities Office (Space RCO)
As a prime contractor for the Space Rapid Capabilities Office (Space RCO) since 2019, MTSI provides highly specialized systems engineers and acquisition specialists to develop low-cost, rapid reaction payloads, busses, launch, and launch control capabilities to meet operational needs of today’s warfighter.
Space Development Agency (SDA)
Since 2020, MTSI played a key role in defining the future National Defense Space Architecture (NDSA) for the Space Development Agency (SDA). Today, we serve critical roles in the development of acquisition strategies and technology development efforts to meet aggressive cost and schedule requirements for both the Transport and Tracking Layers.
Space Systems Command (SSC) Rapid Reaction Branch
For over a decade, MTSI performed rapid prototyping, testing, deployment, and sustainment of ground-based, space capabilities to meet Combatant Commanders time-sensitive requirements. We achieve this through a joint military-government civilian Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) team focused on capability delivery to the warfighter.
Cutting Edge Software Integration
National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) Ground Enterprise Directorate
MTSI serves as the sole provider for the continued evolution and sustainment the National Reconnaissance Office’s (NRO) Ground Enterprise Directorate’s (GED) Battlespace Visualization Initiative (BVI) capabilities since the late 1990s. BVI provides collection situational capabilities for a diverse blend of National, Tactical, and Maritime assets, covering past (event reconstruction), present (in near real time), and future time windows. BVI delivers visualization content compatible with multiple industry standard visualization tools, including Cesium, Leaflet, Google Earth, and others.
MTSI supports the Department of the Air Force Platform One, LevelUP program with full-stack development, security, and operations software functions; the build and operation of multi-tenant shared services in support of software development teams; and containment of existing applications onto the cloud platform. By utilizing and implementing agile principles and lean startup practices, we provide continuous delivery and instill team dynamics rapid respond and dynamic changes.
Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Vehicles Directorate
MTSI supports Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Small Business Incentive Research (SBIR) contracts. As part of our current SBIR Phase III contract, MTSI provides engineering support and application development for AFRL in support of the Joint Task Force – Space Defense (JTF-SD) and the National Space Defense Center (NSDC). MTSI engineers utilize our expertise in Breakup Modeling, real-time data integration, Cloud Application Development, Data Science, User Interface/User Experience (UI/UX) and DevSecOps to transition applications from R&D to operations.
Office of Space Commerce
As a subcontract to KBR/Centauri, MTSI provides engineering support and application development for the JTF-SD. MTSI engineers utilize our expertise in real-time data integration, Cloud Application Development, Data Science, UI/UX and DevSecOps to develop applications for the purpose of building out the JTF operational center.
Space Modeling & Simulations
Supporting Space Situational Awareness
MTSI delivers agile development, software engineering and analytical services to National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) Ground Enterprise Directorate (GED)/Integrated Intelligence System Program Office (I2SPO) in support of the Battlespace Visualization Initiative (BVI). Through BVI, MTSI provides responsive and innovative space, air, maritime, and ground-based intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)-system situational awareness solutions to the Intelligence Community (IC) and Department of Defense (DoD).
Systems Engineering & Integration
Missile Defense Agency (MDA/SS)
As the prime SETA contractor, MTSI leads cradle-to-grave technical, programmatic and engineering efforts for the MDA Space Sensors program office. This includes threat analysis, architectures/concepts, requirements, sensor data analysis, design, acquisition support and integration of emerging capabilities. Principal programs include the Spacebased Kill Assessment (SKA) and Hypersonic & Ballistic Tracking Space Sensor (HBTSS) programs.
