NASA Awards Aircraft Catalog Blanket Purchase Agreement
WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. -- NASA has selected Jet Logistics, Inc., Charlotte, N.C., to receive an Aircraft Catalog Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide the agency access to a variety of airborne platforms to conduct airborne science research. The BPA is an on-ramp to the initial 10 BPAs awarded February 8, 2008. With this addition to the initially awarded BPAs plus other on-ramps, there are now currently 24 BPAs available for use to the scientific community.

The BPA has a maximum ordering value of $10 million and an ordering period from date of award through February 7, 2013.

These aircraft platforms will accommodate light and heavy-lift instrumentation payloads, on fixed wing platforms. Both manned and unmanned aerial platform access is available under these BPAs. The instrumentation payload(s) will be provided by the U.S. government or by non-U.S. government customers. Additional services of engineering, fabrication, and installation may be needed depending on the payload.

The catalogue of platforms is managed by the Goddard Space Flight Center’s Wallops Flight Facility though the missions are conducted at various locations within and occasionally outside the United States.
