ITT Exelis to supply NASA/JPL with advanced antennas to support multinational climate research

ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has been awarded a contract by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, Calif., to provide specialized antennas for the Constellation Observing System for Meteorology, Ionosphere & Climate-2 (COSMIC-2) program.

By analyzing GPS signals altered by atmospheric conditions, COSMIC-2 satellites will provide insights that advance the study of meteorology, ionospheric research, climatology and space weather. Under the agreement, Exelis will provide JPL with 25 high-accuracy multiband Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) antennas.


“Our antennas will ensure the satellites in the COSMIC-2 constellation receive signals clearly and effectively across multiple signal bands from GPS satellites,” said Paul Eyring, senior director of programs for antennas, sensors and microelectronics for Exelis Electronic Systems. “These antennas offer the next-generation sensor system performance that will help advance this important field of scientific research.”

COSMIC-2/FORMOSAT-7 is a joint program sponsored by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Taiwan’s National Space Organization. The program’s planned constellation of 12 satellites will support a variety of atmospheric and ionospheric observation missions, providing a range of real-time atmospheric and space weather data. Each satellite will include two Exelis GNSS antennas.
