Raytheon awarded Earth-observing system engineering contract

  • 09-Apr-2010 05:45 EDT

NASA Goddard awarded Raytheon an Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) evolution and development contract that will give climate researchers access to valuable data about the Earth's atmospheres, oceans, lands, and their interactions. The contract, with an initial value of $75 million, has a $250 million ceiling for the five-year base period of performance. Raytheon developed the core components of EOSDIS, which became operational in 1999; it provides data ingest, archive, and distribution services at data centers that manage Earth-observing data. In 2003, Raytheon won the core system maintenance and development contract and has continued its partnership with NASA to maintain and evolve key elements of EOSDIS.
