Praxis wins Naval Research Lab R&D work

Praxis Inc. won a five-year, $65.4 million contract from the Naval Research Laboratory to provide research and development services for the Space Science Division, the company announced this week.

Praxis of Alexandria, Va., will provide the laboratory with technical support for the design, fabrication, assembly, testing and calibration of experiments, scientific instrument structures, components, subsystems and support equipment.

Tasks include computer modeling, experiment design, data analysis, instrument packaging, payload testing and field deployments.

Praxis will provide services supporting the Space Science Division's major research areas, which include ultraviolet remote sensing of the upper atmosphere, spectrographic studies of the solar atmosphere, and studies of astronomical radiation.

These studies ultimately support the operation of naval ships and aircraft by increasing the fundamental understanding of natural radiation and geophysical phenomena in the space environment and their effect on radio communications, the global positioning system, terrestrial power systems and orbiting spacecraft.
