Important NASA contract awarded Kongsberg Spacetec

NASA’s EDOS (EOS Data and Operations System) program at Goddard Space Flight Centre,
Washington DC, USA, has chosen Kongsberg Spacetec AS in connection with the
modernization of the Ground Stations for their EOS (Earth Observing System) satellites.

The contract is worth 19 million Norwegian Crowns, and the work involved is to be finished within the 1st quarter of 2007.
Since 2004, KSPT has had a close co-operation with NASA EDOS in Washington DC concerning the upgrade of ground stations through continuous part deliveries. This new contract involves the delivery of 22 systems for reception and processing of satellite data. These systems are to be located at Svalbard, Alaska and the USA. The contract also involves the delivery of 10 systems for monitoring and control of all the ground stations.
“This is a very important contract for us, and marks a breakthrough in the American market. We also feel this is a declaration of faith that such a demanding customer as NASA EDOS, is willing to invest in our technology for critical and cost effective operations. We are also experiencing a great interest in our systems from both Asia and Europe, says President Bjørn Kanck at KSPT.
