The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has announced intentions to award a sole-source contract to Sciglob Instruments & Services, LLC for operation and maintenance of the Pandora Spectrometer System Project.
The Pandora project deploys spectrometers in various places around the world to measure trace gas amounts (NO2 and O3) and their altitude profiles.
The contractor will operate and maintain Pandora sensors previously deployed on DISCOVER-AQ as well as new Pandoras as they become available. The effort shall include periodic monitoring of deployed instruments using remote access software, calibration testing, and shipping and receiving support.
In addition, Sciglob will participate with other team members for the development of sensor modifications related to lessons learned during DISCOVER-AQ and other Pandora deployments.
The work is to be performed at a laboratory at Goddard Space Flight Center, for a period of performance for at least 12 months.
