March 26, 2012|By Scott Dance, The Baltimore Sun

NASA awarded a contract Monday to Science Systems and Applications Inc. to help observe the atmosphere and the sun.

The job is worth up to $103 million for the Lanham-based company.

Science Systems will design and maintain technology orbiting the Earth to monitor atmospheric and solar conditions. It will also help NASA's earth science division perform satellite missions, prepare research proposals and support software engineering.

The work will be performed at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt from April 1 through April 30, 2017. The job is what is known as an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, meaning the company will work as needed by NASA until billings reach the $103 million ceiling.
