Raytheon to work on US Navy’s Environmental Satellite Receiver Processor program
The U.S. Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command has awarded Raytheon Technical Services a $49.9 million contract for support work on the navy’s Environmental Satellite Receiver Processor program.
Under the indefinite-delivery/indefinite quantity contract, the company will provide engineering, production, procurement, in-service engineering agent, and support services for the program.
Navy Environmental Satellite Receiver Processors (ESRP) systems are deployed on ship and shore platforms and provide real-time organic/direct read out (DRO) capability for ships and shore stations to receive, process and disseminate environmental data from both polar orbiting and geostationary satellite families to the Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC) community in support of war-fighter mission planning and execution in all warfare areas.
These satellite families consist of both U.S. and Foreign owned METOC sensors.
Raytheon will perform work on the contract primarily in Indianapolis, Indiana, and is expected to complete it in September 2022.
