NASA, Boeing Sign Contract Modification for Station

NASA and the Boeing Space and Communications Group, Houston,TX, have signed a modification to the International Space Station contract (NAS15-10000) valued at $26.3 million definitizing planned changes to the assembly sequence baseline.

The changes included moving launch dates, deleting and adding U.S. flights, and revising the Multi-Increment Manifest (MIM). These factors required rework to the Design Analysis Cycle, Verification Analysis Cycle, mass properties and other analysis-related activities.

Work under this Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract will be performed by Boeing in Houston as well as at Boeing Information, Space and Defense Systems locations in Huntington Beach, CA; Canoga Park, CA; and Huntsville, AL.
