ASRC Federal subsidiary Netcentric Technology, LLC has been awarded the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Fairbanks Command and Data Acquisition Station Operations and Maintenance Support Services contract.
The contract, valued at $44 million, began June 1 and includes a base period of one year, with four 12-month option periods.
As part of the contract, the ASRC Federal team will install, operate and repair highly specialized satellite ground station equipment.
“This NOAA facility in Fairbanks is a National Critical Asset that maintains functions 24×7, regardless of emergencies or disasters,” said Jennifer Felix, president and CEO of ASRC Federal. “We are honored to continue our work on this important mission, and grateful for this validation of our team’s experience, contributions and previous success.”
ASRC Federal will also help maintain the site’s buildings, vehicles, roads and infrastructure in support of satellite operations.
The FCDAS in Fairbanks, Alaska, gathers meteorological and environmental data from its polar-orbiting environmental satellites. The station is also a backup to support NOAA’s primary geostationary satellite ground station.
