NASA Awards Contract for IT Services at Langley Research Center

NASA has awarded its Langley Information Technology Enhanced Services II (LITES II) contract to Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) of McLean, Virginia for information technology (IT) services at the agency’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.

This firm fixed price, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract runs from Nov. 1 to Oct. 21, 2020 and has a total value of $200 million. The work will take place at Langley and at SAIC’s Hampton facility, and will support other NASA centers, industry and government partners.

LITES II provides for IT support services in the areas of science and engineering applications, some center infrastructure applications, data center support, business management applications support, and IT project management support. The IT services range from more traditional IT services, such as system administration, to more specialized IT that involves the development, maintenance and operation of science and engineering software used in modeling and simulation.

Langley has a focused effort to revitalize its capabilities in modeling and simulation, as part of the Comprehensive Digital Transformation (CDT). The goal of CDT is to push the state of the art in modeling and simulation by increasing the level of physics modeled in the numerical simulations as well as increasing the speed and usefulness of the tools. This will allow a shift to more numerical modeling and simulation to answer complex problems.
