NASA Extends Engineering and Scientific Services Contract
 
 
CLEVELAND -- NASA's Glenn Research Center has awarded a one-year contract option to ASRC Aerospace Corporation of Greenbelt, Md., for engineering and scientific services. The option has a value that will not exceed $50 million.

The contract provides engineering and scientific support services to Glenn's Lewis Field and Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, Ohio. ASRC will provide on-site support services for technical, engineering and scientific tasks in the areas of aeronautics, microgravity science, space exploration, space power and propulsion, and related science and technology activities.

The modification increases the total value of the contract to $200 million. The extension begins Sept. 1, 2009. It is the second of three one-year options provided for in the original contract, awarded in August 2006.
