Integral Systems will provide the primary and backup satellite control systems for the Vinasat-2 satellite, under a contract with Lockheed Martin.

Lockheed is currently building the satellite for the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) based on its A2100 spacecraft platform.

Integral will upgrade the existing Integral Systems’ EPOCH integrated product suite (IPS) for the Vinasat-1 and Vinasat-2 satellites.

The upgrade will provide a complete, real-time command and control (C2) system including automated scheduling, procedure execution, offline trending and analysis and flight dynamics functions.

The satellite is scheduled for launch by the second quarter of 2012.
