Colorado Professional Resources (CPR)
CPR provides expert support and is highly experienced in Zone 6. Through program management and planning CPR is supporting research and development (R&D) of the Air Force’s Space Situation Awareness Environmental Effects Fusion System (SEEFS). SEEFS is a suite of rapid prototyping state-of-the-art applications that process and merge relevant environmental data with space systems performance parameters to objectively assess system impacts for subsequent fusion into the single integrated space picture. Using analytical and predictive models this R&D effort provides the tools to collect global environmental data and disseminate and integrate this information into the Government’s decision-making cycle. CPR is moving the SEEFS' application beyond R&D to future operational deployments supporting the Combatant Commanders.
Colorado Professional Resources (CPR) provides its client base with satellite systems engineering and training primarily for Department of Defense agencies. CPR benefits from an experienced management team and a cadre of engineering professionals that are able to provide the Government with a wide range of superior professional engineering services and solutions. Over the past two decades the CPR’s engineering team has supported DoD satellite communication systems and missile defense systems through advanced engineering and technology transfer expertise. More recently the team has assisted as a prime contractor in the development, improvement, and validation of new technology to mitigate environmental impacts in space on DoD communications and weapon systems.
CPR boasts a professional staff that has participated in some of the Nation’s most critical programs supporting national security. CPR’s day-to-day management staff averages over three decades of U.S. Government contracting experience. That experience includes contracting expertise necessary to ensure FAR compliance as well as compliance to the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM). This management expertise allows CPR to effectively manage large government contractors that it uses in subcontracting roles, and to communicate effectively with the Government’s operations and contracting personnel. CPR possesses the management skills that are absolutely necessary for a small Government contracting company to be successful.
On the JSC Bioastronautics contract, MEI supports Wyle Labs in work that includes fundamental and applied biomedical research; biotechnology development; biomedical engineering; biomedical flight hardware requirements, design, fabrication, and testing. Our engineers perform electrical design and circuit analyses; electrical and mechanical assembly and testing (prototype and flight); design testing procedures including pass/fail criteria; design new test equipment; develop, test and implement test procedures; research, design and fabricate physical scale models, mock-ups, and pre-prototypes. Other examples of MEI work includes design and development of soft goods such as medical kits, containers for holding payloads, seat strap assembly, sample panels for acoustic testing, foam inserts, carrying cases, pouches for various uses, etc. We also perform a variety of human factors analysis and human engineering reviews/assessments and ensure that human engineering requirements are properly integrated into crew hardware. MEI engineers also develop human-centered design requirements including verification procedures; developing plans for evaluation and analysis of concepts, models, and mock-ups.
On the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Electrical Systems Engineering Services (ESES) contract, MEI provides system and subsystem design support during Phase C/D projects. We provide analytical support that includes multidisciplinary system analyses and trade studies involving mechanical, thermal, optics, control, detector, and electrical aspects of flight and ground systems. This contract also provides fabrication, assembly and testing services, which we subcontract out to major aerospace suppliers such as BAE Systems, SAIC, and Northrop Grumman. MEI personnel analyze mission requirements and establish mission architectures to demonstrate that credible, feasible designs exist. We develop top-level requirements, alternative operations concepts, project constraints, and system boundaries considering feasibility and risk studies; cost and schedule estimates; and advanced technology requirements. MEI performs detailed design of subsystems, components and assemblies for instrument / spacecraft / platform and ground support equipment such as Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), and Hubble Space Telescope (HST), and the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES).
On the DoD Shuttle/ISS Human Spaceflight Payloads (DHSP) contract at NASA JSC, MEI has supported the Air Force Space Command (Det 12) for thirteen consecutive years and more than 100 payloads. MEI provides complete payload integration, safety certification, customer support operations, and special studies support for all DoD payloads that fly on the Space Shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS). MEI is responsible for developing integration schedules and performing general management functions for each payload and mission; integrating designated payload elements into the Shuttle and ISS; operating the payloads during flight; supporting hardware logistics of payload elements and ground support equipment including flight assignment and manifesting support; maintaining the DoD Payload Operations Control Center; performing payload element testing, engineering analyses; and payload requirement definition and documentation.
On the Boeing Engineering Contract, in support of the Space Shuttle and International Space Station (ISS) programs, MEI develops mechanical and structural definitions of products and designs minor components or portions of major systems. We ensure designs and engineering data are accurate, integrated, clearly communicated, and we also modify existing designs to develop or improve products to facilitate processes. Our team performs checks and validation of 3-dimension Unigraphics model files for analysis of ISS advanced products and payload systems; develops and produces validated CAD models for Boeing, NASA and their customers for analysis of ISS cargo elements; develops structural models using finite element models, and performs classical stress analyses in support of ISS vehicle design and development utilizing tools such as NASTRAN, PATRAN and Unigraphics to verify and optimize ISS vehicle structures.
