ProTech Satellite Domain enables the support for the acquisition, deployment, and ground system development/monitoring of satellites essential for forecasting the weather, analyzing environmental and climate phenomena, and monitoring hazards worldwide.
The mission and objectives of the primary users of the ProTech Satellite domain are related to satellite and observation activities and the collection, preservation, and dissemination of information and services derived therefrom. NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) is the primary customer for this vehicle, and is dedicated to providing timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources to promote, protect, and enhance the nation's economy, security, environment, and quality of life. To fulfill its responsibilities, NESDIS acquires and manages the nation's operational environmental satellites, provides data and information services including earth system monitoring, performs data and information product stewardship and preservation, develops and produces information products and models derived from observed data, and performs official assessments of the environment and conducts related applied research. NOAA's environmental satellite data are essential for forecasting weather, analyzing environmental and climate phenomena, and monitoring hazards worldwide. This 24/7 global coverage provides a constant stream of information used in preparation for events that impact our climate, weather, oceans, and daily lives.
The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for the ProTech Satellite domain contract is 541715 Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences (except Nanotechnology and Biotechnology) - Exception C (Guided Missiles and Space Vehicles, Their Propulsion Units and Propulsion Parts).
The Statements of Work (SOW) and Performance Work Statements (PWS) released on the ProTech website are pre-decisional and for informational purposes only. All projected acquisitions are subject to revision or cancellation.
