Ball Corp. is actually a Broomfield-based company with offices in Boulder. Ball has previous experience with similar projects including a previously built Global Precipitation Monitoring Microwave Imager instrument. That was a program delivered to NASA in a related $48.5 million contract.

Ball has been involved in the design and manufacture of many military and commercially applied sensing devices, including the ozone mapping instrument for Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite. This instrument is the most recent polar-orbiting seather satellite for the local Boulder lab, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Ball reported 2012 sales numbers in excess of over $8.7 billion. As one of the area large employers, we can see a consistent trend towards job strength, with is a leading indicatory of a strong economy in our area.
