Raytheon Updating NASA Earth Observing Software

Raytheon logo_TNNIRaytheon has won an $8 million contract to provide subsystem upgrades to NASA's Earth Observing System as the company aims to help the agency operational and maintenance issues.

The company intends to help the Goddard Space Flight Center reduce its number of machines to maintain by 69 percent through implementing automation and virtualization technologies, Raytheon said Tuesday.

Raytheon will aim to upgrade the subsystems according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s cybersecurity standards and upgrade software on the EOS command, control and telemetry subsystems.

NASA’s EOS CCT subsystem project supports the Terra, Aqua, Aura and TRMM missions, which aim to provide data for climate researchers and scientists in their study of relationships between the oceans, land and the atmosphere.

Raytheon previously integrated its command and control Eclipse-based online software into the subsystems and the software became operational in 1999.
