April 13, 2006 - Addendum Synopsis Detailing Procurement of Free-Flyer Mission (original entry February 22, 2006)

On April 13th, NASA published a synopsis addendum - .doc (20.5 KB) to the original procurement announcement to include requirements for the development, delivery, and integration of a portion of the LDCM ground segment called the LDCM Mission Operations Element (MOE). 

The functions of the MOE will include mission scheduling (not to include long-term and daily image collection planning and prioritization); command and control; long-term trending and analysis; and flight dynamics capabilities. The scope of the MOE is an addition to the procurement of a free-flyer spacecraft, instrument, and operational systems/sustaining engineering support.
