Orbital Sciences has a long history supporting NASA missions and projects and scientists at Ames dating back to the mid 1990's. Beginning with engineering support to the SOFIA project, they became the prime contractor on the Science and Engineering Technical Support (SETS) contract. Following SETS, Orbital joined with Lockheed Martin as the major subcontractor on the Programs and Project I(P&P) contract. As part of the P&P, Orbital supported numerous missions and scientists, including Mr. Bill Borucki and the Kepler Mission, the SOFIA project, the EXES project, and the NASA Astrobiology Institute.
