NASA/NSSC has a requirement for Model 380 Tipping Bucket Precip Gauges 12"

50 Rain Gauge, 12". 0.01" Tip Calibration

The estimated period of performance or lead-time for delivery is 30 days after receipt of order.

NASA/NSSC intends to issue a sole source contract to Met One Instruments 1600 NW Washington Blvd. Grant Pass, Oregon 97526-1052 under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b)(1)(i). It has been determined that is Met One gauge is fully compatible with the current set of gauges that are part of the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) network. The requirement for this procurement is that the rain gauges must be fully compatible with an existing set of rain gauges. Only the Met One gauges will be 100% compatible with the set of gauges previously procured and currently in operation at WFF.

The NASA Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission utilizes hundreds of tipping bucket rain gauges for validating space-borne rain rate estimates. The gauges to be purchased provide the exact specifications necessary to deploy these instruments on platforms that have already been purchased. These gauges are of the highest quality and fully support the mission requirements.

NASA/NSSC will be the procuring center for this effort. Performance will be located at NASA/ Wallops Flight Facility (WFF)
