The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has awarded a US$113m Systems Engineering and Technical Services (SETS) contract to Vencore, a Virginia-based information solutions provider.
Under the terms of the contract, which initially runs for a year, with four one-year options, Vencore will support NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS).
NESDIS acquires and manages the nation’s operational environmental satellites; operates NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI); provides data and information services including Earth system monitoring; performs official assessments of the environment; and conducts related research.
Vencore will work closely with NESDIS to deliver systems engineering services and solutions to sustain legacy systems and enable the transition of future ground systems for new environmental satellites, among them GOES-R and JPSS. - February 2017
