An Acentia subsidiary has won a five-year, $97.2 million contract to provide satellite mission operations and maintenance support to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The company said Tuesday that 2020 Company will provide operations and maintenance, systems engineering and program management support services to NOAA’s satellite and product operations office.
Work will occur at the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility and the Center for Weather and Climate Prediction, both in Maryland.
Todd Stottlemyer, Acentia CEO, said the company has delivered IT services for other NOAA missions for the past seven years.
“[We] are pleased to have the opportunity to expand our relationship with the Agency and provide critical management and technical support for its satellite operations—which provide life-saving, leading-edge scientific data globally.”
NOAA’s OSPO organization manages environmental satellite data and products as well as satellite and central ground facility operations for the collection, processing and distribution of data and products.
