This Week’s Highlight: Geoscience Australia opportunities at Mt Stromlo

This week we look at two related opportunities issued by Geoscience Australia, the government’s technical advisor on all aspects of Geoscience, centred around the operation and maintenance of the Mount Stromlo Satellite Laser Ranging (SLR) Facility. The Commonwealth’s SLR Facility, based in the ACT, is part of a worldwide network of SLR stations measuring distance to earth-orbiting satellites. Geoscience Australia seeks to establish two contracts, one for the daya to day operation of the Facility and the other for the more adhoc maintenence and upkeep.

Provision of Services for Satellite Laser Ranging Operations at Mt Stromlo. Under this opportunity, the Contractor will be required to operate the SLR Facility to track and range geodetic satellites including:

(a) data acquisition, post-processing, calibration, data distribution and quality control;

(b) data storage, backup and risk management;

(c) Facility maintenance;

(d) Support for External Components; and

(e) the addition of new or upgraded hardware and/or software.

The Services do not include the maintenance and enhancement of the Facility’s technology, which is the subject to a second RFT detailed below, but does include direct day to day maintenance and upgrade of the Facility itself.

Deed of Standing Offer for the Provision of Services for Technology, Maintenance and Enhancement at Mt Stromlo. For this RFT, Geoscience Australia is seeking experienced contractors to enhance the Facility’s technology, which includes the Facility’s electrical, mechanical, and computing infrastructure. The services are expected to be of an adhoc nature which in the past has equated to approximately 4 days/month and is more about the supporting infrastructure (‘technology’) of the SLR Facility than the Facility it self. Scopes of work may involve:

(i) equipment upgrade and/or replacement;

(ii) software upgrade and/or enhancement;

(iii) upgrade of communications and related equipment; and

(iv) repair, replacement, adjustments, or other remedial work.

Both tender opportunities are to be treated seperately, and if you are suitably experienced, you may submit a response to both. The closing date for both RFTs is 2nd September 2020. The anticipated timeframe for the contract is three years with two options to extend for a period of 12 months each.
