NASA, Norwegian Space Center Ink Combined Data Services Agreement

Norway’s Space Center has landed a potential five-year, $43.8 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from NASA to provide combined data support services for the Joint Polar Satellite System program and other collaborative international missions.

Work under the international agreement will occur at the Svalbard Ground Station in Norway and the Antarctica-based Troll Ground Station through Aug. 13, 2022, NASA said Tuesday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration-managed JPSS missions offer global environmental data in low-Earth polar orbit.

NASA also partnered with the Norwegian Mapping Authority in efforts to create satellite laser ranging station located 650 miles from the North Pole which will track changes in ice sheets as well as support marine transportation and agriculture.
