Zenoss will provide software and services for the US Air Force’s Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS) programme under a five-year contract announced on 25 April.

The DCGS, also known as the AN/GSQ-272 Sentinel weapon system, uses a global communications architecture to connect multiple intelligence platforms and sensors to produce military intelligence for multiple military branches. It is the air force's key system for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance information and is used for collection, processing, exploitation, analysis and dissemination.

Zenoss will provide its software-defined IT operations platform to support the newly designed DCGS architecture and provide a common operating picture for all DCGS infrastructure across multiple security echelons at more than 60 sites.

The Zenoss installations at each site will be implemented by Intelligent Waves.

Greg Stock, chairman and CEO at Zenoss, said: ‘Through our software-defined IT operations capabilities, we'll continue to deliver results for the air force and provide the highest levels of communication and coordination in support of its missions.’
