Phoenix AZ (SPX) Sep 08, 2011


As part of the contract, Honeywell will also develop concepts of operations, provide systems engineering, and integrate and test new satellite ground systems from launch to orbit operations. The contract will continue through October 2016.

Honeywell has won a five-year, $450 million contract with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) to provide Ground Systems and Mission Operations (GSMO) services for the agency's fleet of scientific research satellites.

The NASA research satellite program is focused on gaining a better understanding on key issues such as planetary exploration, natural disaster characterization, climate change, ground topography mapping, agricultural efficiency, and electromagnetic effects on the earth.

Honeywell will work with GSFC to help extend the life of existing research satellites and increase optimization for new satellites that will support greater scientific space research activities in the future.

"Honeywell has partnered with NASA since its inception to develop and advance the U.S. space program," said Charles Harvey, president of Honeywell Technology Solutions, Inc.

"Today, our technologies will re-set the operational life and value of NASA research satellites, enabling the agency to continue to meet commitments on a wide range of missions of vital importance to humankind."

As part of the contract, Honeywell will also develop concepts of operations, provide systems engineering, and integrate and test new satellite ground systems from launch to orbit operations. The contract will continue through October 2016.

Honeywell's Aerospace business is a leading global provider of integrated avionics, engines, systems and service solutions for aircraft manufacturers, airlines, business and general aviation, military, space and airport operations.
