INNOVIM is pleased to be part of the team that was awarded the Space and Earth Science Data Analysis (SESDA) IV contract at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, MD, along with prime contractor ADNET.
The SESDA contract provides a broad range of services to primarily support the Sciences and Exploration Directorate’s (SED, Code 600) Earth and space science research and development, data operations, and activities in information system technologies, engineering, and science communication, education and public outreach, that enable Code 600 to successfully carry out its science missions at Goddard. SESDA-IV is a five-year cost-plus fixed-fee contract with a total potential value of approximately $250 million.
Named after Robert Goddard, American engineer, professor, physicist, and inventor, GSFC is a major NASA space research laboratory established as NASA’s first space flight center. “We are honored to extend our partnership with NASA at Goddard, and the science community as a member of the SESDA Team. INNOVIM is committed to the success of our customers and helping achieve NASA’s science mission objectives,” said Dr. Shahin Samadi, INNOVIM’s Chief Technology Officer. He added, “We seek to realize Dr. Goddard’s vision: ‘It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow’.”
The SED science data operations are driven primarily by science discipline-specific needs and discipline-specific approaches to how data are most effectively and efficiently made available and useful to discipline research communities. The contract phase-in is already underway.
