Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) July 12, 2006
Summation Research, Inc. (SRI) today announced that they have been selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to provide advanced Multi-Functional Demodulators in support of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) weather satellite system. The contract award, once fully deployed, is in excess of $400,000.
GOES satellites provide continuous monitoring of the atmospheric "triggers" for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes, flash floods, hail storms, and hurricanes as well as for day-to-day weather forecasting and climate studies. This critical information provides the basis for intensive data analysis and the distribution of weather and related information. Images and data from the GOES satellites to be received by the new SRI equipment will support regular and emergency weather forecasts and climate predictions across the nation and beyond.
Under the terms of the contract SRI will provide SD-4220 Demodulators to replace outdated satellite ground station equipment at NOAA GOES Command and Data Acquisition (CDA) facilities in Wallops, VA and Fairbanks, AK, Satellite Operations Control Center (SOCC) at Suitland, MD, and NOAA facilities at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The advanced programmable architecture of the SD-4220 Demodulators can receive Imaging, Sounding, or Solar X-Ray data collected by the GOES satellites. The demodulators will also help in the distribution of critical weather information to users of NOAA services.
“Summation Research is proud to be selected to support NOAA in this vital and strategic national service”, said Tom Drago, Vice President of SRI. “Living and working on Florida’s East coast we have an acute awareness of the importance of timely and accurate weather and climate information. Deploying our Multi-Functional Demodulators in this key application will help NOAA efficiently and reliably support the collection and delivery of potentially life-saving weather information.”
The SD-4220 Demodulators to be supplied under this contract are part of a family of transmit and receive satellite and range communications and telemetry equipment built by SRI.
