Northrop Grumman Space and Mission Systems Corp., Redondo Beach, Calif., is being awarded a $12,266,612 cost plus award fee contract modification. This is a modification to the National Polar-orbiting Operating Environmental Satellite Systems (NPOESS), to incorporate into the Acquisition and Operations Contract a Contract Change Proposal to transfer the Conical Scanning Microwave Imager Sounder (CMIS) momentum wheel compensation responsibility from Boeing Satellite System (BSS) to Northrop Grumman Space Technology. The NPOESS Satellite design includes a large spinning reflector as part of the CMIS sensor, requires Momentum Wheel Assemblies (MWAs) to compensate for the torque and momentum applied to the spacecraft. The baseline design had Boeing Satellite supplying the MWAs as part of the CMIS Sensor. However, during development of a CMIS radio frequency interference mitigation change, it was recognized that CMIS faults could result in spacecraft level faults. Trade studies revealed that if the spacecraft attitude control subsystem developed by Northrop Grumman performed momentum compensation for CMIS, them CMIS related anomalies would have lower impact on the overall mission performance. The location of performance is: Northrop Grumman Space and Missions Systems Corporation, Redondo Beach, Calif. (51%) and Honeywell International Incorporated, Defense and Space Electronics Systems, Glendale, Ariz. (25%). Satellite delivery to support NPOESS C1 Satellite launch estimated for October 2010 and C2 launch estimated in April 2012. At this time, no funds have been obligated. The NPOESS Integrated Program Office, Silver Spring, Md., is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0502/P00054).
