An Exelis subsidiary has signed a blanket purchase agreement with NASA to provide image and data visualization analysis software packages for the agency’s climate research projects.
Exelis Visual Information Solutions and NASA intend for the agreement consolidate more than 800 separate contracts into one annual transaction, Exelis said Monday.
The agreement covers the subsidiary’s ENVI and IDL software packages.
NASA centers have also gained access to Exelis Professional Services, a portal that works to help the agency and company customize and extend the software solutions that they need.
“We are proud that we can help make geospatial imagery and data an integral part of NASA’s mission, which is to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown,” Jaye Lampe, Exelis Visual Information Solutions president.
“NASA continues to push the limits of scientific exploration and discovery, both in space and on Earth,” she added.
The space agency’s Shared Services Center will administer the BPA and NASA aims to yield annual savings of more than $100,000 under the new deal.
