Infinity Systems Engineering received a three-year prime contract to support the global positioning system program’s sustainment organization of the Space and Missile Systems Center at Schriever Air Force Base.
The $9 million contract provides organizational maintenance and operational support services that includes remote-site technicians, network administrative operators and operations support to the GPS mission.
Staff will also be located at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida; Ascension Island in the South Atlantic, Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean and the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, according to a press release from Infinity.
“Infinity has been supporting the GPS program for the past 20 years through multiple subcontracts, and is excited to start a direct relationship with the U.S. government to support the GPS mission and its importance to both the military and commercial markets,” said Andy Wilfong, president of Infinity Systems Engineering.
The global positioning system provides three-dimensional position, velocity and time information to air, land, sea and space-based users. Civil applications include in-route sea and air navigation, vehicle monitoring, harbor operations and cell phone timing. The satellites have a secondary mission, the nuclear detonation detection system, which provides data for military operations and treaty enforcement.
Infinity was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Colorado Springs. The company provides advisory, engineering, intelligence and information technology services for the government. For eight consecutive years, they’ve been an Inc. 5000 company and was awarded a Colorado Company to Watch in 2015 and the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance’s Growth Company of the Year in 2013.
