The Program
The Engineering, Development, Integration and Sustainment (EDIS) contract is for Contract Support Services (CSS) providing engineering, development, integration, test, and sustainment of the Research and Development Space and Missile Operations (RDSMO) program Ground System Enterprise (GSE) in support of the United States Space Force (USSF) and Space Systems Command (SSC to look at how to make the nation's national security space enterprise more resilient.

The SSC Innovation and Prototyping Directorate (SSC/SZI) at Kirtland Air Force Base, NM, supports the USSF RDSMO program requirements. The SSC/SZI mission is to operate and sustain an affordable GSE for R&D and demonstration missions; to develop innovative solutions to reduce Operations & Maintenance costs; to provide a test bed to prove out emerging concepts; to build and support ground system instantiations, to integrate operational missions (major weapon systems) into the GSE, to integrate and sustain cyber defense, and to remain a viable choice for all new ground satellite operations command and control. In addition, SSC/SZI operates experimental and demonstration satellites, and fixed and mobile satellite ground systems.

SSC/SZI provides a collaborative partnership between developmental, test and operational units to seamlessly develop and rapidly field new capabilities, standardize satellite operations and exploit core competencies/strengths. SSC/SZI coordinates with SSC/SDTF to support the SSC and EGS initiatives, as well as other Department of Defense (DoD) activities. As initial capabilities are demonstrated for operational missions, those capabilities are expected to transfer to operational sustainment processes, procedures, and funding lines. The SSC/SZI vision is to create an innovative and collaborative R&D/demo GSE for use in all USSF R&D/demo missions as well as all future operational ground programs under the EGS and SSC initiatives. SSC/SZI is the USSF focal point and center of expertise for DoD experimental and demonstration space and missile operations supporting space and missile R&D efforts and conducting space and missile Developmental Test and Evaluation (DT&E) and Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) activities.
