Atlas Space Operations provides ground support for Space Force Victus Nox mission

TRAVERSE CITY–Atlas Space Operations, a provider of ground software as a service to the satellite industry, announced it has been contracted by Boeing Co. subsidiary Millennium Space Systems to support its Victus Nox program.

Atlas provided its global ground station network using its proprietary Freedom™ Software Platform to automate communications and enable near-real-time troubleshooting capabilities. Victus Nox required mission partners to maintain constant mission readiness to support launch and first contact followed by accelerated spacecraft commissioning within a condensed time frame.

“At Atlas, we pride ourselves on our highly reliable network and adaptable software, and we demonstrated that with Victus Nox,” said Atlas CEO John Williams. “Without any compromises to support our existing government, civil, and commercial customers, we were able to fully support this record-breaking Space Force mission. Atlas demonstrated how it works with our mission partners to deploy and operate communications solutions more quickly than ever before.”

With Victus Nox, the U.S. Space Force made history by launching a satellite just 27 hours after receiving orders. The effort broke records when the Space Force built, delivered, launched, and operationalized a satellite faster than ever before—part of the service’s push for tactically responsive spaceflight.
