NOAA seeks cloud-based software applications – MeriTalk

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has published a special notice on October 5 to explore options for transitioning from hardware-based ground radio processing to cloud-based software applications.

NOAA’s National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) is requesting demonstrations to help the agency better understand the viability of using commercial sector capabilities for expanding the NESDIS Common Cloud Framework, as appropriate. applicable.

Since October 2020, NESDIS has been working on cloud migration adopting an enterprise adoption approach. The agency’s NESDIS Common Cloud Framework is an essential part of digital transformation. The framework is designed to securely ingest data and generate operational products.

The agency also wants insight into the use of basic cloud-based digital ground capabilities required for enterprise-level support of near-term space-to-ground communications.

“NOAA [expects] to use the results of demonstrations and studies to better understand options for transitioning to a common service-based enterprise architecture,” the notice states.

NOAA plans to issue a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) within the next six weeks, requesting proposal submissions for demonstrations and studies. BAA submissions are open to the private and academic sectors.
