Range Operations Services:
As part of Centuria’s work with NOAA’s NWS Radar Operations Center (ROC) we support the National Severe Storms Lab (NSSL) National Weather Radar Testbed (NWRT), a Multi-function Phased Array Radar (MPAR) range.Centuria installed the calibration tower and supports operation, maintenance, and sustainmentof the Phased Array Radar (PAR) as NSSL and MIT Lincoln Labs lead efforts to demonstrate the potential to simultaneously perform aircraft tracking, wind profiling, and weather surveillance with a single phased array radar.
For the Department of Energy’s Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), Centuria provided IT and program support for the marketing and delivery of reliable, cost-based hydroelectric power and related services within a 15-state region of the central and western U.S. WAPA is one of four power marketing administrations within the U.S. Department of Energy whose role is to market and transmit electricity from multi-use water projects. The transmission system carries electricity from 57 power plants operated by the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the International Boundary and Water Commission. Together, these plants have an installed capacity of 10,395 megawatts.
