Scisys wins mission control contract

Scisys has signed a contract for up to €1.9m with GMV, a privately owned technological business group, for the design and implementation of a mission control system to support the EUMETSAT Polar System earth-observation programme.

This related to the second generation of polar-orbiting satellites that would provide weather-prediction data for national meteorological services during the 2020's and 2030's, the company said.

Commencing in 2017, the contract was expected to be delivered by 2021 and underpinned current market guidance.
