The 5 year contract, awarded under a full and open competition, has an estimated value of $ 14.9 million. Work will be performed at the Satellite Operations Control Center (SOCC) in Suitland, Maryland. The SOCC is responsible for the command operations and routine monitoring of telemetry for the satellite constellations and ensures mission integrity and a continuous flow of high quality weather images and data.
ASRC Aerospace is an Alaska Native Corporation headquartered in Anchorage, AK, with its primary business office in Greenbelt, Maryland.
"We are excited about ASRC's role in providing support to this vital resource that provides valuable weather images and data to protect public health and safety," said Richard Ambrose, ASRC Aerospace Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
NOAA's National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service (NESDIS NESDIS National Environmental Satellite Data and Information Service (USA) ) operate all of the United States operational environmental satellites from the SOCC, including the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES), the Polar Operational Environmental Satellites (POES) and the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Military weather satellite controlled by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Also called DMSP. (DMSP). The data gathered from these satellites allows our country's weather and emergency agencies to accurately forecast hurricanes and other severe storms, monitor global climate change, verify ozone depletion and land surface change, monitor critical space environmental parameters, and support search and rescue efforts across the globe.
