In fiscal year 2014, the Raytheon-backed EOSDIS
In particular, the space agency has not devoted enough funding or attention to building prototypes of critical EOSDIS
Every day the EOSDIS
system receives 3 terabytes of new data from its five satellites and distributes 2 terabytes of data to researchers around the world.
Raytheon developed the core components of EOSDIS
, called the EOSDIS
core system, which became operational in 1999; it provides data ingest, archive and distribution services at data centers that manage earth observing data.
SM&A President & COO Michael Piraino said, "This contract addition solidifies our participation in the EOSDIS
program through 2002 and increases our corporate-wide backlog to approximately $150 million.
The IIMS will be able to broker orders for data outside EOSDIS
, and will allow scientists to track placed order status.
Raytheon is the prime contractor for NASA's EOSDIS
Once it becomes fully operational in 1998, EOSDIS
is expected to gather more than one terabyte of environmental data per day.
Horrigan, project manager for the EOSDIS
core program at EDS, "We needed powerful, flexible query and reporting tools to use with very large databases and a large number of users.
As part of its contract with the EOSDIS
project, Informix will develop a 4D Spatial DataBlade software module that will support longitude, latitude, height and time -- as well as easy indexing of those disparate information types.
Client/server database technology is absolutely critical to the success of EOSDIS
and we are confident that we made the best choice with Sybase," said Robert A.
AutoSys will be used in the EOSDIS
Core System (ECS) project
