Will Provide Engineering Support On Constellation
Science Applications International Corporation announced this
week it has been awarded a contract by the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration (NASA) to provide engineering and technical
services to the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Ground Operations
Project Office in support of NASA's Constellation Program.
The maximum value of the contract is more than $69 million if
all options and line items are exercised. The core contract has a
two year base period of performance, three one-year options, and
total potential value of $59.3 million. The contract also contains
an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity line-item option with a
ceiling value of $10 million. Work will be performed primarily at
KSC in Cape Canaveral, FL.
The Constellation Program aims to gain significant experience in
operating away from Earth's environment, developing technologies
needed for opening the space frontier and conducting fundamental
science. The program will develop the next-generation US spaceship
system, the Orion space capsule and the Ares rocket to launch
Under the contract SAIC will provide engineering and technical
services, project and business management, and administrative
services in support of the program.
"SAIC has supported NASA at KSC for the past 10 years," said
Charles Zang, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general
manager. "We look forward to continuing our support of the
Constellation program, and helping NASA advance human exploration,
use, and development of space."
