Vencore Inc. announced Feb. 9 it has been awarded the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Systems Engineering and Technical Services contract valued at $113 million. With a 1-year base period and four 1-year options, Vencore will support NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service.
“Our business was built on a foundation of understanding and solving the most complex challenges associated with satellite and ground operations,” Vencore President and CEO Mac Curtis said. “We are honored to work with NESDIS, which plays such an integral role in managing critical space assets that make important contributions to environmental resource management and our national security.”
NESDIS acquires and manages the nation’s operational environmental satellites, operates NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information, provides data and information services including Earth system monitoring, performs official assessments of the environment and conducts related research.
Under this new contract, 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 including GOES-R and JPSS.
