GREENBELT, Md. -- NASA has selected Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies Inc. (SGT) in Greenbelt, Md, to provide geophysics, geodynamics, and space geodesy support. The total maximum ordering value of the cost-plus-fixed fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite- quantity contract will be $45 million. The effective ordering period is from July 1 through Aug. 31, 2015.

Under this contract, SGT will support a wide array of geodynamic, geomagnetic, geophysical, and atmospheric investigations of the Earth. Among the requirements for these investigations are instrument development; software development and maintenance; and data collection, archiving and dissemination. Contract work also includes scientific data analysis, modeling and interpretation; reports and presentations of scientific results; public outreach and education; and associated technical and administrative work.

SGT will provide support to investigators associated with current programs such as Interdisciplinary Studies in Earth Science; projects such as GRACE, the Ocean Surface Topography Mission, and ICESat; and future missions defined in the National Academy of Science Decadal Survey, such as ICESat-2 and SWOT.

The work will be performed at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and at the SGT facility in Greenbelt.
