Space and intelligence operations present overlapping and interdependent activities. Signals travel from satellites ringing the Earth to vehicles, bases and individuals on the ground, providing communications, navigation and surveillance. These missions demand rigorous data integrity and reliability.
Data integrity stands out as a top priority, especially in national security. As the national security space architecture transitions to a fully digital, hybrid architecture, public-private partnerships will be a key element of success. In such a hybrid architecture, interoperability between systems and technologies contributes to high-quality, high-speed delivery of work. Moreover, private sector innovations can help liberate and protect federal assets, such as data, to mitigate threats and vulnerabilities.
Federal civilian agencies also play active roles in space, on missions of science and exploration. Private-sector businesses own many of the satellites now in orbit, and are working toward providing space travel for passengers.
CGI embarked on its first space project in 1974, and we have been active in the sector ever since, across our global and U.S. presence. We’ve worked to increase the value of clients’ space investment while combatting ever-growing security threats to space assets and information.
