Omitron awarded task order to provide Astrodynamics and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) support to DARPA
Omitron is a subcontractor to Pacifica Defense Solutions for the OrbitOutlook (O2) DARPA program that aims to improve the SSN by adding more data more often from more diverse sources to increase space situational awareness to determine when satellites are at risk. O2 comprises three elements: the inclusion of new telescopes and radar from diverse […]
Omitron was awarded a subcontract under the NASA ESES-II contract, with an initial task order to provide sustaining engineering and operations support for the joint NASA/NOAA DSCOVR mission. Omitron developed the DSCOVR Mission Operations Center (MOC) at the NOAA Satellite Operations Facility in Suitland, MD, and performed launch and commissioning operations and training of the […]
TESS is an explorer-class planet finder mission scheduled to be launched on a Falcon-9 in 2017 that will perform an all-sky transit survey identifying planets ranging from Earth-sized to gas giants. Under the task order, Omitron supports integration and test of the science instrument through development and implementation of instrument verification and validation tests, with […]
