MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. — NASA has selected Computer Sciences Corporation of Lanham, Md., to provide supercomputing support services at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. The contract has a potential value of approximately $600 million.

The 10-year, cost-plus-award-fee contract consists of a two-year base period and eight one-year priced options, with a maximum value of $597,083,422 if all options are exercised.

Computer Sciences Corporation will support the supercomputing services provided by the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division at Ames. The division operates some of the largest, most advanced supercomputers in the world and is the lead supercomputing facility for high performance computing for NASA.

The company also may provide supercomputing support to the NASA Center for Computational Sciences facility at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., and additional high performance computing support to other NASA field centers as needed, if those options are exercised.
