In performing the main tasks of the contract, QSS Group, Inc. will design and develop aeronautical and space systems and space-flight hardware, perform mathematical and theoretical analyses, and conduct tests.
The work will support various activities at Glenn, such as wind tunnel testing of new air- and space-flight concepts, developing improved tracking and data-relay satellites to greatly increase the amount of data that can be sent to or received from NASA's far-flung spacecraft, and improving Earth-observing satellite systems.
The contract consolidates two existing contracts and is expected to provide overall work efficiencies to Glenn. The five-year, "8(a) set-aside" contract has a total estimated value of $140 million.
