Leonardo DRS’ proven ability to support mission-critical customers is founded on our customer-centric culture and our belief that competent and reliable technical solutions must be deployed before emergencies occur. As a mission partner, we developed a comprehensive, progressive, and resilient network and support infrastructure, including the Leonardo DRS AISR Operations Center, which consists of Tier 1-2 technicians and AISR subject matter experts (SMEs) – where all personnel are well trained in KuSS/KaSS Hub systems and aircraft modem technology. The AISR Operations Center uses a comprehensive list of tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) to aid in the execution of daily operations. Acting as the primary point of contact for all AISR satellite-related issues, the AISR Operations Center coordinates with the appropriate AISR community stakeholders to troubleshoot satellite network anomalies and satellite outages. Further, the Leonardo DRS AISR Operations Center team has close working relationships with leading AISR vendors enabling rapid implementation of mission support reducing planning, engineering, and deployment of solutions from days to hours with higher tracking and situational awareness capability.
