LGS Innovations to provide monitoring systems to NOAA

LGS Innovations, a technology company providing specialized mission-critical communication research and solutions, was advised by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that it has been awarded USD 8.5M toward a potential USD 204M NOAA Radio Frequency Interference Monitoring System (RFIMS) contract, the company said.

RFIMS is a five-year contract to develop, produce, install, and maintain a radio frequency interference monitor system to mitigate the risk of potential interference by commercial wireless carriers sharing the spectrum with NOAA satellite operations. Other affected government departments such as the Departments of Defense and Interior ground stations may also benefit from the development of the RFIMS and awarded contract.

Under the terms of the contract, LGS Innovations will deliver frequency spectrum monitoring between NOAA and wireless carriers, provide real-time detection of “interference events,” classify the types of RF interference it detects, and provide real-time notifications to both NOAA operators and the wireless carriers of any detected interference.

LGS Innovations is a technology company delivering mission-critical communications products, R&D, and supporting services to US defense, intelligence, and civilian agencies and commercial customers around the world.
