Doppler radar system sought
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration needs a contractor to design and install a Doppler radar system for its Gulfstream GIV-SP aircraft. The radar system will obtain detailed wind field and precipitation information for the initialization of the National Weather Service's hurricane weather and research forecast computer model.
The Doppler radar system will exchange information with a data path and quality control system NOAA is developing. The agency expects to award a fixed-price contract no later than September 2005. Responses are due by Jan. 25. Contact William Becker at email@example.com.
