Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) is proud to announce its team has been awarded a task order with a maximum ordering value of $21 million over the potential five-year period of performance under the Sci-Tech NG IDIQ contract.  The task is to perform ocean science and technology applications for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR).

“This is an outstanding opportunity for Global Science & Technology,” said GST President Chieh-san Cheng.  “We have established ourselves as a leader in the scientific and technical research of current and future satellite observations.  We are very proud to have the chance to work with NOAA’s Center for Satellite Applications and Research to better observe, predict and understand the ocean.”

The project involves scientific and technical research and development of current and new satellite observations, archived data and remote sensing data as it pertains to the oceans and coastal areas.

“This work and the people who support it are providing critical information to address global issues on a daily basis,” explained GST Vice President Celeste Jarvis.  “We are fortunate to be working with professionals dedicated to such an important mission.”

STAR is the science arm of the NOAA Satellite and Information Service (NESDIS), which acquires and manages the nation's operational Earth-observing satellites. NESDIS provides data from these satellites, and conducts research to make that possible.

The Sci-Tech NG IDIQ is NOAA’s largest scientific and technical support services contract designed to be used throughout the agency. The GST Team will harness its comprehensive management and technical solutions expertise to support the multiple science challenges associated with the Sci-Tech NG IDIQ. The five-year multiple award contract has a maximum value of $550 million.

The GST science-focused team, made up of many NOAA contractors and more than 29 universities as well as dozens of expert consultants, has the following core capabilities: Program Management, Satellite, Data, and Information Support, Marine Fisheries Support, Ocean Service Support, Weather Service Support, and Oceanic and Atmospheric Service Support.
