Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has been awarded a $185 million contract modification to update a common ground system for three National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration environmental satellites.

The company will refresh ground station technology for the Joint Polar Satellite System, which works to gather weather and storm data from polar-orbiting spacecraft, Raytheon said Friday.

“Our customers’ high consequence missions demand faster data they can trust, ” said Lynn Dugle, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business.

NOAA awarded the modification as part of a potential $1.7 billion contract in an effort to build up JPSS’ operational control, data routing and information security features.

“We have been developing these data delivery and information assurance capabilities as part of our commitment to providing common ground stations that can support multiple platforms, ” Dugle said.

Raytheon completed a critical design review of the JPSS CGS on Jan. 17.

NOAA and NASA collaborated on the program to support environmental monitoring through 2022.
