WASHINGTON -- NASA has increased the maximum ordering value of the Multidisciplinary Engineering and Technology Support, or METS, services contract with Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT) Inc. of Greenbelt, Md. The maximum value increased by $40 million to approximately $339 million. The ordering period remains from Feb. 5, 2005, through Feb. 4, 2010.

Under the contract, SGT Inc. performs tasks that are necessary for the formulation, design, development, flight and non-flight fabrication, integration, testing, and verification of space flight and ground system hardware and software. This includes development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions for the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt.

Task orders under the contract provide critical support to a wide range of NASA'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, Polar Operational Environmental Satellites, the Magnetospheric Multi-Scale Satellites, the Global Precipitation Measurement Observatory, the Glory Observatory and others.
