Glenn Research Center Awards Research Contract to Maryland Firm

NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH, has awarded a contract to the QSS Group, Inc., Lanham, MD, to provide scientific research and development services at the Center.

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.
