Numerica signs second contract with NASA

LOVELAND — Numerica Corp., a research and development company in the area of information science, was awarded a two-year, $600,000 Small Business Innovation Research Phase II contract to help improve space mission design for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Numerica program director Randy Paffenroth will lead efforts to compute and manage uncertainty in flight trajectories. Philip Du Toit, a Numerica research scientist, is a key contributor to the project.

Scientists and researchers at Numerica will collaborate with scientists at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. The research will help compute flight paths, lower fuel consumption and reduce uncertainty for NASA space missions.

“Our technical teams thrive on the challenging problems NASA-related missions present,´ said Jeff Poore, president of Loveland-based Numerica. “It’s exciting and rewarding to help NASA realize program success in space, and to explore commercial applications for this technology.”

Numerica was awarded another contract with NASA earlier this month, also worth $600,000, to develop collision prediction capabilities for Unmanned Aircraft Systems operation in the National Aerospace System.
