NORAD/USSPACECOM Warfighting Support System (N/UWSS)
Integrated Space Command and Control (ISC2)

The NORAD/USSPACECOM Warfighting Support System (N/UWSS) will sustain, evolve, and provide operational support for the following: the existing Cheyenne Mountain Complex (CMC) C2 Systems; the Mobile Command and Control Center (MCCC) for Space and Strategic CINCs; the AFSPACE Space Operations Center (SOC) at Vandenberg AFB, CA; the USSPACECOM SPOC at Peterson AFB, CO; the Alternate Missile Warning Center (AMWC) at Offutt AFB, NE; the Cheyenne Mountain Training System (CMTS), and the space and missile warning assets located at forward user locations (e.g., NMCC, Site-R, PACAF, USAFE, etc.). In addition, the program will provide for internal integration among the systems identified above, as well as for external integration of these systems with other C2 systems (e.g., SBIRS, NMD, C2IPS, TBMCS, etc.).

The objectives of Integrated Space Command and Control (ISC2) are:

  • Total System Performance Responsibility (TSPR) - The ISC2 contractor will assume TSPR for the systems within the scope of the ISC2 contract to the maximum extent possible. The contractor will serve as the principle focal point for interaction of ISC2 systems with "network-wide" C2 systems, such as those above, that are beyond the scope of this contract
  • Integration - Seamlessly integrate new mission capabilities with existing and evolving capabilities. Ensure interoperability with other CINCs and component commands and assure flexibility to adapt to changing mission requirements
  • Mission Integrity - Assure operational availability and integrity of C2 functions while the systems are migrated into new systems and architectures.
  • Total Ownership Cost (TOC) - Reduce total ownership costs to develop, evolve, sustain and integrate operational support for existing and new C2 systems and architectures. Using a baseline established as part of the contract tasking, achieve a 20% cost reduction by 2005, and continuing cost reductions throughout successive years of the ISC2 Contract.
  • Reduced Cycle Times - Provide maximum C2 capabilities within minimal delivery cycle times (e.g., weeks to months versus years) using CAIV-based evolutionary acquisition and industry "best practices" techniques.
