ENGINEERING SERVICES

(contract last updated 09/12/2019)

SCOPE:  Contract for the purchase of Engineering Services in support of scientific and research/development projects.

 

Customers/Users of this contract must consider any Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) contracts that may be in place for similar services to ensure that the services needed are not available from any Contractor already awarded a mandatory DOA Contract.

 

UW System customers should also note that the Physical Sciences Lab (PSL) offers Electrical and Mechanical Engineering services that should be considered as well (http://www.psl.wisc.edu/services).                           

 

Occasionally, due to increases in workload, departments need to augment their in-house capabilities to meet the schedule requirements of their various projects.  As a result of this, service contracts with vendors are set up to aid in these research efforts.

 

For example, the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC) is a research and development center within the University of Wisconsin Graduate School. Its primary focus is on geophysical research and technology to enhance our understanding of the atmosphere of Earth, the other planets in our Solar System, and the cosmos. Some of the research is conducted through exploration of the universe from space and terrestrial-based telescopes, along with probes to other planets in our solar system. Our Earth is also studied to gain information and insight into weather, climate, and other aspects of Earth's global environment. To facilitate this research, SSEC develops new observing tools for spacecraft, aircraft, and ground-based platforms; models atmospheric phenomena; and provides support services for NSF-sponsored cold-regions research in both of the polar regions and high altitudes. Huge amounts of geophysical data is received, managed and distributed by SSEC.  Innovative software is developed to visualize and manipulate this data for use by researchers and operational meteorologists all over the world.

 

SSEC possesses a strong instrument development team that includes the disciplines of electrical, mechanical, thermal, optical, electro-optical, software, and systems engineering; as well as project management and quality assurance capabilities. SSEC has a long and successful history of collaboratively working with diverse groups of researchers, both internal and external to the University of Wisconsin, to help define, design, implement, test, and document cutting-edge ground, air, and space-based instruments.

 

Two other examples are the Astronomy Department and the Space Astronomy Lab (SAL).  Part of the research mission of the Astronomy Department involves developing astronomical research instrumentation for ground-based and space-based research facilities as well as research data analysis and archiving for the research community. Space-based instrumentation developed by the department include aircraft experiments, Hubble Space Telescope instrumentation, sounding rocket payload and guidance instrumentation, and Space Shuttle payload instrumentation. Ground-based facilities are located on large telescopes in remote locations throughout the world including the deserts of South Africa, Arizona, and Australia. Ground-based instrumentation developed by the department includes control systems, remote sensing and data acquisition, detector and optical design, imaging and spectroscopy, as well as fiber-optic and MEMS interfaces. Harsh environments and inaccessibility are just some of the challenges faced during the development and deployment of this type of unique, state-of-the-art space and ground-based instrumentation.
