NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has awarded the Raytheon Company a 5-year contract valued at up to $240 million to continue its support of the Earth Observing Systems Data and Information System. 

The system ingests, archives and makes earth science data available to the scientific community worldwide.

The contract is the third competitively awarded contract Raytheon has received to maintain, operate and develop improvements for data access and system performance. The initial contract award was in 1992.

"For more than twenty years Raytheon has partnered with NASA Goddard on developing innovative earth science data solutions," said Dave Wajsgras, President of Raytheon Information, Intelligence and Services. "Our support enables important research used to analyze climate data to better understand how to protect our planet."

Under this contract, Raytheon will continue to make improvements that enable more integrated data access and data sets for science applications.

Specific work includes software maintenance and enhancement, development of applications to process and visualize data, and system and hardware evolution.
