The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has awarded Merlin Technical Solutions of Greenwood Village, Colo., a contract to install and maintain network operations hardware and software for the agency's Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services.
Merlin will support and maintain CO-OPS' licensing information as well as provide systems integration services. The contract is valued at $2.5 million for the one-year base period, while three one-year options are also available.
The Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services collects current data as a part of the National Currents Observation Program at locations throughout the country. The data collected and predictions derived are used to ensure safe, efficient, and environmentally sound maritime commerce. NOAA is an agency of the Commerce Department.
