NOAA has chosen Open Ocean Robotics, in collaboration with the 1st Mission Team, as one of the awardees for all three Multiple Award IDIQ (Indefi nite Delivery, Indefi nite Quantity) contracts.
These contracts, through NOAA's Office of Marine and Aviation Operations (OMAO) Uncrewed Systems Operation Center (UxSOC), encompass three critical areas:
