NASA Increases Value of Engineering and Technology Contract
WASHINGTON -- NASA has increased the maximum ordering value of a contract with Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT) Inc., by $49.2 million to support the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

Under the Multidisciplinary Engineering and Technology Support services (METS) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, SGT Inc. performs tasks necessary for the design, testing, verification and operations of space flight and ground system hardware and software.

Tasks include development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions in support of the directorate's five engineering divisions: Mechanical Services, Information Systems, Instrument Systems and Technology, Electrical Engineering, and Mission Engineering and Systems Analysis.

Work under the contract provides critical support to a wide range of Goddard's missions and projects, including the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Solar Dynamics Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Space Telescope, the Geostationary Environmental Operational Satellites-R, the Polar Operational Environmental Satellites, the Magnetospheric MultiScale Satellites, the Global Precipitation Measurement Observatory and the Glory Observatory.
