Sierra Nevada Corporation Receives Contract to Support Exelis on NASA's Joint Polar Satellite System-2 Mission

Sierra Nevada Corporation's (SNC) Space Systems was competitively selected by Exelis Geospatial Systems to develop and build the Radiation Budget Instrument (RBI) Azimuth Rotation Module (ARM) for the Joint Polar Satellite System-2 (JPSS-2) mission.

SNC will develop and build the ARM, which will serve as a rotational stage for the RBI Instrument and as the primary interface between the RBI and the JPSS-2 Spacecraft in its Louisville, Colorado, and Durham, North Carolina, facilities.
