Xela Collaborates with Raytheon to Secure the GPS OCX Space System


AURORA, Colo., Nov. 1, 2020 — Xela’s information assurance team assisted the GPS Next-Generation Operational Control System, known as GPS OCX, program with achieving the highest level of cybersecurity protections of any DoD space system. GPS OCX, the enhanced ground control segment of a U.S. Air Force-led effort to modernize America’s GPS system, is on track for a June 2021 delivery.

The U.S. Air Force used the cybersecure GPS OCX launch and checkout system, often referred to as Block 0, to launch the first modernized GPS III satellite into space in December 2018 and the second in August 2019.

The team’s focus now is the delivery of the system’s new modernized receivers, which will measure and monitor legacy military and civilian signals sent by the current GPS satellite constellation plus the new signals sent by the next-generation GPS IIIs.
