TriVector Awarded GSA NOAA OSC Satellite Export Control Contract

On September 01, 2016, TriVector Services was awarded the NOAA/NESDIS Office of Space Commerce (OSC) Commercial Space Policy, Strategy, and Economic Analysis Support contract. Released under GSA, this contract covers coordination with the Bureau of Industry and Security to update and reissue the OSC plain language guidebook to the satellite export control process as necessary to ensure that the OSC realizes its goal of being the principal unit for coordination of space-related policy issues, programs, and initiatives within the Department of Commerce. As the single point of entry for commercial providers, OSC streamlines processes for easier communication with NOAA.

Under this six-month contract, TriVector will provide a subject matter expert to update and streamline the OSC’s plain language guidebook to the satellite export control based on revised guidelines set forth by the 2013 National Space Transportation Policy and the 2015 U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act.

TriVector looks forward to widening our capabilities within NOAA and the OSC, and this work adds on to our existing capabilities with NOAA program management for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and our past work with nanosatellites with the Centre of Quantum Technologies (CQT) and the National University of Singapore (NUS). (For more information on both these capabilities, refer to our Program Management and Engineering Analysis pages.)  "TriVector looks forward to the release of the updated Guidebook in the coming year and welcomes this opportunity to help US companies increase their market share in the rapidly expanding global space industry," stated Senior Vice President Tim Kauffman.
