NASA Awards Contract Modification To L-3 Services
HOUSTON -- NASA has signed a contract modification increasing the not-to-exceed value of a support contract with L-3 Services of Fairfax, Va., by $49.2 million.

The contract provides simulation and software technology support to Johnson Space Center’s Software, Robotics and Simulation Division in the fields of design, development, testing and operations of intelligent systems, robotic systems, spacecraft flight software systems and real-time simulation systems. L-3 Services also provides engineering support in the areas of automation and intelligent systems, as well as telerobotics and autonomous robotic systems for ground and spaceflight applications.

This work supports the development and operations of the Space Shuttle and International Space Station programs, the Orion project, the Mission Operations Directorate training systems project and advanced programs for exploration.

This modification brings the total not-to-exceed value of the contract, which began in May 2008, to $98.2 million. The cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract concludes on April 30, 2013.
