The NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC), Houston, has selected Loral Space Information Systems, Inc., a Houston division of Loral Aerospace, to begin final contract negotiations for the Aircraft Simulation and Information System Contract


Total proposed cost and fee of the 5-year effort beginning Jan. 1, 1994, is approximately $35 million. The 5-year period of performance will be divided into a 2-year base contract period and three 1-year option periods. The award will be the continuation of the engineering and technical effort currently being performed by Loral Space Information Systems, Inc.

The contracted work will be performed at the JSC Ellington Field, Houston. Support will be required for Shuttle training aircraft deployed in Shuttle launch/landing and field training operations at El Paso, Texas; Edwards AFB, Calif.; and Kennedy Space Center, Fla.

Work to be provided is in support of the JSC Aircraft Operations Division (AOD) of the Flight Crew Operations Directorate. These services include engineering and technical support for astronaut training in a high fidelity airborne simulation of the Space Shuttle landing phase and information systems support to the AOD local area networks and data bases.
