  • Science on Fire

ADNET Systems Inc. has been awarded the Space and Earth Science Data Analysis (SESDA-IV) contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to support the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland. SESDA-IV is a five-year cost-plus fixed-fee contract with a total potential value of approximately $250 million.

Under SESDA-IV, ADNET will provide a broad range of services to support Earth and Space science research and development, data operations, as well as activities in information system technologies, engineering, and science communication, education and public outreach that enable the Sciences and Exploration Directorate to successfully carry out its science missions at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).

SESDA is the premier Space and Earth science contract at GSFC and this award represents the third straight time ADNET Systems has been selected for this prestigious contract. Over 300 scientists, engineers, and education outreach specialists support the SESDA contract through a broad range of science disciplines, including solar and space plasma physics, astrophysics and astronomy, planetary studies, atmospheric science and climatology, oceanography, land processes, geodynamics, and solid earth geographics. “All of us at ADNET are pleased and excited to continue our partnership with NASA and we are thrilled to be selected as the SESDA contractor for the third time.” said Ashok Jha, President and CEO of ADNET.

GIFT Keeps On Giving

September 13, 2019

The Goddard Instrument Field Team (GIFT) performs research campaigns at geologic areas that are similar to locations on other planets and moons. In August, as the team took measurements of lava tubes and landscapes formed by the Mauna Loa volcano, SESDA’s Molly Wasser traveled with them and created Twitter and Facebook posts sharing their science and giving the public a first-hand account of research in the field.
