NASA awards systems work to Raytheon
NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory has awarded a $55 million contract to Raytheon
Co. for systems integration work.
The company began work under the five-year contract, which has two five-year options,
late last year. Raytheon is helping JPLs Earth and Space Sciences Division implement
and run science data systems, said Marty Scarbrough, a JPL contract negotiator.
Among the services Raytheon provides the NASA agency are systems engineering and
architecture design, software development, science mission planning and end-user support,
JPLs Earth and Space Sciences Division studies how weather, climate, water and
air affect the planet.
