Washington, Oct. 27, 2014—NASA has awarded the Hydrospheric and Biospheric Sciences Support Contract to Science Systems and Applications, Inc., of Greenbelt, Maryland.

This contract is a cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with a maximum ordering value of $210 million. The period of performance will be five years from the effective date of December 1, 2014. This competitive follow-on procurement was 100 percent set-aside for small businesses.

The contractor will support satellite remote sensing instrument development as well as field and aircraft instruments and activities for measuring Earth, oceanic, biospheric and atmospheric processes. The work will include scientific and engineering support for the design, development and testing of remote sensors and sensor systems, including mechanical, electronic, optical, laser and electro-optical, and data system engineering.

It also includes software support for the development and testing of space-based instrument systems as well as sensor calibration and on-orbit performance analysis. The work will be performed at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt.
