M2 Strategy is proud to be a part of a team selected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for a ProTech-Satellite Domain small business contract award. M2 Strategy has teamed with INNOVIM, a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB), as a sub-contractor under this contract award. The mission and objectives of the NOAA PROTECH Satellite Domain are related to satellite and observation activities and the collection, preservation, and dissemination of this information. The National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) is dedicated to providing timely access to global environmental data from satellites and other sources to promote, protect, and enhance the Nation’s economy, security, environment, and quality of life. NOAA’s environmental satellite data is essential for forecasting weather, analyzing environmental and climate phenomena, and monitoring hazards worldwide.

M2 Strategy, an exemplary architect of complex organizational design, strategic planning, and tactical project management, has over six years of experience providing functional and technical support to NESDIS’ GOES-R program and User Readiness. A proud NOAA partner for the past 14 years, M2 Strategy supports both NESDIS and the National Weather Service (NWS) through multiple contracts. M2 Strategy is excited for this opportunity to allow us the ability to continue expanding the breadth and depth of our existing support to NOAA under this new contract vehicle.
