According to the firm, the facility “will allow U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems personnel to interact with the GPS Operational Control Segment (GPS OCX) system in an operations-like environment.”

Raytheon is working as the prime contractor on the GPS OCX program.

The new center will include, among other amenities, an executive presentation room and state-of-the-art operations and demonstration areas.

“GPS OCX is critical to full-spectrum precision position, navigation and timing information for all GPS user communities: civil, commercial and military, ” said Robert Canty, vice president and GPS OCX program manager at Raytheon. “Through the center, Raytheon and Space and Missile Systems personnel will be able to collaborate with the Air Force and program partners via virtual demonstrations from Raytheon’s other program locations in Aurora, Colo., and the Network Integration and Experimentation Center in Rosslyn, Va., advancing the GPS OCX program in a timely manner and providing value to the Air Force.”
