NASA has awarded a contract to Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (SSAI) of Lanham, Maryland, for hydrosphere, biosphere, and geophysics (HBG) support services.
The small business set-aside, cost-plus-fixed fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract features a minimum ordering value of $9 million and a maximum of $425 million. The five-year ordering period begins April 1. there’s a 45-day phase-in period under a separate ordering agreement.
The purpose of this contract is to accumulate research project services to conceive, develop and apply space, field-deployed (airborne and in situ), and laboratory-based technologies and observations. The work includes research project associated with water resources, land and ocean ecosystems, health, global and regional sea-level change, natural hazards, changes within the Earth’s cryosphere, gravity field, magnetic flux , solid Earth, topography, reference frames, and therefore the effects of climate variability on Earth systems.
SSAI will provide a full range of science and research support across the breadth of varied laboratories that structure the HBG Subdivision of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, including the Cryospheric Sciences, Ocean Ecology, Hydrological Sciences, Biospheric Sciences, Geodesy and Geophysics and Terrestrial Information Systems Laboratories.
The work are going to be performed at Goddard and therefore the contractor’s facilities.
