NASA has selected ARES Technical Services Corp. of Burlingame, CA, for its program integration contract for Orion. The cost-plus-fixed-fee services contract has a potential value of $49 million, including options. The contract begins April 1 with a base performance period of two-and-a-half years followed by two one-year options and includes indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity task orders.
ARES will provide products, professional services, and systems engineering and integration services to NASA's Orion Program, which is developing a spacecraft that will send humans farther into space than ever before. ARES will support the program's planning and control, vehicle integration and crew and service module. Additional services include education outreach, and test and verification functions.
Work under the contract will be performed at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, with additional work at other NASA centers and at Orion's prime contractor facilities. Companies that will support ARES on the contract include MEI Technologies Inc. of Houston.
