Mission-Critical System Sustainment and Modernization
Our team has over 14 years of experience providing system sustainment and modernization services to the nation’s highest-priority satellite ground systems. Our experience on these programs spans systems architecture, requirements development, interface development, software development, hardware development, network communications, systems administration, integration, automation, cyber security, site installation and sustainment/maintenance.
Our support services span the entire system lifecycle, from design, development, testing, and integration, through operations and maintenance.
NDP has made significant contributions to major DoD and Intel programs through leading multi-contractor teams in the design and implementation of satellite and payload factory elements. The NDP team has also enhanced the cybersecurity posture for these mission-critical systems. Development of network and cybersecurity architectures are key components of NDP’s success, including the design of a network monitoring center providing 24/7 situational awareness for the warfighter and the design and deployment of the Out-of-Band Management (OOBM) network.
NDP contributes significantly to the success of system engineering, integration, and test (SEIT) activities. We have significant experience testing Red Hat, Solaris, IRIX, Windows, Juniper, Cisco, and other various support system platforms that constitute the major ground infrastructures. Testing includes using various COTS products and tailored scripts developed to check for open vulnerabilities against DISA and DSS standards. Our team also assists with external network vulnerability assessment efforts.
Post deployment, the NDP team offers training options in adherence with our deployment turnover procedures and system documentation following an implementation. Operational, maintenance, and sustainment support instruction enables Operators to maximize the mission-critical capability and functionality of the deployed environment.
NDP can fully staff or augment sustainment support teams with Subject Matter Experts (SME) to ensure a smooth transition and operational stability.
