As part of the NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) transition into a 21st Century Launch Complex, the KSC Weather Office required a full replacement of the aging and difficult to maintain 50 MHz Doppler Radar Wind Profiler (DRWP). The DRWP is a 5 acre phased array radar capable of measuring wind shear to 80,000 feet, and is used to safeguard rocket launches from excessive upper level winds.
Working under the KSC Engineering Services Contract led by Vencore Services and Solutions, Project Engineering services were provided for the successful replacement effort of this unique one of a kind weather radar system. Tasks included working with NASA experts to develop the Statement of Work (SOW) and lead the procurement resulting in contract award with DeTect Radar Wind Profilers.
