ERT is pleased to have been awarded the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) IT Mission Support contract by the National Ocean Service (NOS). The NGS, under NOS, has the primary mission of collecting geospatial data from various sources, and processing and disseminating that data via value-added data products to the public. As part of National Spatial Reference System (NSRS), NGS develops and maintains geodetic models and tools, and shoreline information. Users can then access NSRS through web interfaces, ftp, and other forms of downloads.
NGS constantly evaluates new technologies or tools for potential implementation in order to mitigate the risk associated maintaining legacy software. Under this X-year contract, ERT will evaluate, test, and deploy technical solutions, and provide input to NGS management on state-of-the-art technologies related to the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for mission critical support systems; applications and databases; database administration; web server administration, and IT security. Staff for this contract will be located in Silver Spring.
