NASA Extends Science, Engineering, Analysis And Test Contract
NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC), Houston, has awarded Lockheed Martin Space Operations an extension to the Science, Engineering, Analysis and Test (SEAT) contract worth $39 million.

Under the SEAT contract, Lockheed Martin Space Operations provides engineering, scientific and technical support to research and development projects; engineering, maintenance and operations support for research and development laboratories and facilities; engineering and programming support of automatic data-processing equipment and networks; and design, development and operations support of payloads and flight hardware. Lockheed also provides technical support to flight crew training for payloads and spacewalks, and furnishes equipment and systems associated with that work.

The modification exercises three one-month options for continued performance for the period Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, 2004. The first extension month is worth $10.6 million, the second $15.3 million and the third $13.1 million. Total value of the 11-year contract is $1.9 billion.

The contract work, to be performed at JSC and Lockheed Martin's Houston facility, will be a continuation of the engineering services currently performed by Lockheed under contract NAS 9-19100. The agreement is a cost-plus-award-fee contract with incentive provisions. The extension was awarded noncompetitively.
