ITC Provides Logistics Support to Critical MDS Test
ITC Defense Corporation (ITC) celebrates its participation in the successful completion of the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) Flight Test THAAD Weapon System (FTT)-21. FTT-21 was conducted in March 2022 at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), New Mexico. FTT-21 was the “first live intercept of a software build that provides the capability for the THAAD Weapon System to compute PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) firing solutions, communicate with an M903 Patriot Launching Station, and simultaneously control multiple PAC-3 MSE interceptors in flight” (MDA, 2022).
As the prime contractor for the THAAD Product Support Contract – Small Business (TPSC-SB), ITC’s Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) teams are embedded with all seven U.S. Army THAAD Batteries and provide sustainment-level maintenance and logistics support to MDA and the Warfighter for the THAAD fire control, launchers, and peculiar support equipment.
“The success of this test was vital to the modernization and integration of our Missile Defense System (MDS)” said TPSC-SB Program Manager, Jason Fisher. “Our team has been side-by-side with the unit through all phases of this mission and we’re extremely proud of their dedication to their Warfighter counterparts”. The success of this test further fostered the relationship between the members of the U.S. Armed Forces that operate the robust network of sensors, weapons, and communications systems of the MDS, and the contractors and civilians that provide direct support to their mission.
