Braxton Technologies LLC has won an 18-month, $1.2 million contract with Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems to supply software for satellites.
Braxton will provide orbital analysis software for Boeing 702MP, 702HP and geomobile satellites, which will help with Boeing’s transfer-orbit and station-keeping operations.
Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Braxton provides products and services for commercial and government missions. The contract will add four jobs in the Springs and two at the company’s branch office in Pleasanton, Calif.
Braxton’s software supports multiple satellite bus maneuvers – from parking and transfer orbits to final geosynchronous orbit and station-keeping operations.
The work will be completed within 16 months, said Braxton’s Program Manager Greg Davis.
For nearly 10 years, Braxton has partnered with Boeing for space missions.
