If all options are exercised, the contract is valued at $47 million over the next nine years.

The MARK IVB System is a recently redesigned global satellite weather system that can support the military forces beyond 2020 with all currently defined satellites.


Its leading edge technologies provide for flash-updated satellite changes and full-system redundancy with significant growth opportunity as many more satellites are added to the world's multi-national weather constellation.
