USAF Multi-Mission Satellite Operation Center & Legacy Ground Systems
Metis supports the USAF Space & Missile Systems Center’s Advanced Systems & Development Directorate at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On the current Engineering, Development and Sustainment contract, Metis is part of the Lockheed Martin team supporting the multi-mission satellite operation center and legacy ground systems supporting launch and operations of USAF and other Agency R&D spacecraft.
As subcontractor to Lockheed Martin, Metis provides cleared personnel in the areas of systems administration, systems engineering and software engineering to support ground system development and sustaining engineering. In addition, Metis leads the EDS Network Engineering group and provides Information Systems Security leads at both Kirtland and Shriever Air Force Bases. Our staff work multiple concurrent programs in which ground systems are tailored to support specific spaceflight missions. Systems administration is performed primarily in a Linux RedHat environment with virtualized servers. Systems, software and network engineering involves design, development and sustaining engineering of ground system components – and design work toward enterprise solutions.
