November 15, 2019 - NASA has awarded an extension of the Mission Operations and Integration (MO&I) contract, to Teledyne Brown Engineering. Under this contract, Teledyne will continue to provide payload operations in support of the International Space Station (ISS) from Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL and Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX.
October 21, 2019 – Teledyne Brown Engineering has been awarded a sole source contract from the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for the follow-on production of MK11 Shallow Water Combat Submersible (SWCS) Systems. The contract, including all options, is valued at $178 million.
Teledyne Brown Engineering received the Large Business Prime Contractor Excellence Award at the Industry and Advocates Award Ceremony at the NASA Marshall Small Business Alliance (MSBA) meeting for superior performance with Small Business goals, and initiatives to assist, promote and utilize Small Business concerns
October 3, 2019 - On September 19, 2019 Teledyne Brown Engineering’s Ring Sheared Drop (RSD) hardware was successfully installed in the Microgravity Science Glovebox on the International Space Station. RSD provides scientists a powerful new tool to study the formation of amyloid fibrils found in brain tissues of individuals suffering from neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
September 30, 2019 - The German Aerospace Center’s (DLR) Earth Sensing Imaging Spectrometer (DESIS-30) on board Teledyne Brown Engineering’s Multi User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) platform on the International Space Station (ISS) has reached Full Operational Capability (FOC). DESIS-30, the result of a collaboration between Teledyne Brown Engineering and the German Aerospace Center, has been operational and collecting 10 nm spectral resolution hyperspectral imagery since late 2018. The validation of the instrument calibration and performance has been completed and DESIS-30 is now able to process and deliver high-quality 2.55 nm hyperspectral imagery.
July 23, 2019 – TBE delivered one of its latest Space Station experiments, the Ring Sheared Drop (RSD), to NASA. RSD will study the formation of the amyloid fibrils that are found in the brain tissues of patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. On Earth, container walls and heat convection affect the formation of the fibrils. Scientists want to run the experiments in microgravity where there is no heat driven convection and where liquids form into a spherical drop, thus eliminating the need for a container. For this experiment, Teledyne Brown Engineering designed the hardware from initial concept, fabricated and assembled the flight hardware, and created the software that allows the hardware to be controlled from the ground.
July 19, 2019 – Dr. Erek Withee is joining Teledyne Brown Engineering as its Chief Engineer, and will work from the company’s headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama. In this position, Dr. Withee will be the engineering leader for Teledyne Brown Engineering, and assume responsibility for engineering practices and the coordination of the engineering workforce to meet program goals across the company. He will also lead the integration of resources company-wide, monitor technical performance, and serve as the technical leader for the company with external customers.
July 1, 2019 – Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems business unit recently presented a 4 Star Supplier Excellence Award to Teledyne Brown Engineering at a ceremony held during their supplier conference in Boston, MA. Raytheon’s IDS business unit instituted the annual Supplier Excellence Awards program to recognize suppliers who have provided outstanding service and partnership in exceeding customer requirements.
May 31, 2019 - NASA recently certified Kaila Myrick as a Microgravity Science Glovebox (MSG) Facility Operator. Kaila was the first student from Alabama State University (ASU) and the second flight controller to obtain certification as a part of a Mentor Protégé Agreement (MPA) between Teledyne Brown Engineering and ASU. The MPA, signed under Teledyne Brown Engineering’s Mission Operations and Integration (MO&I) Contract, allows the University and students participating in the program to receive assistance in developing multi-media training for the International Space Station (ISS) Payload Ground Support Personnel and Payload Developers.
May 1, 2019 - The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) has announced that Teledyne Brown Engineering along with the Department of State, Department of Defense, Department of Energy and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) are recipients of the 2019 Interagency Partnership Award.
