NASA/GSFC has a requirement for two (2) Pressure Transducer Flight Units for the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) spacecraft.

PACE will extend the high quality ocean ecological, ocean biogeochemical, cloud, and aerosol particle data records begun by NASA in the 1990s, building on the heritage of the Sea-Viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWiFS), the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), and the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS).

The PACE satellite is planned for a launch in 2022-2023. The PACE project office at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is responsible for the satellite development, launch and operations. The mission is planned for launch into a Sun synchronous polar orbit at 676.5 km with an inclination of 98° and a 1 pm local ascending node crossing time.
