ATK Wins $42 Million NASA Contract Modification for Launch Support
[Satellite TODAY 12-02-10] ATK Launch Systems has won a $42 million contract extension with NASA, to continue to provide pre- through post-launch support through December 2011, ATK announced Dec. 1.
The extension also signals the completion of ATK’s contract with NASA to process flight hardware after the last scheduled space shuttle flight. ATK will provide post-flight services, including maintenance and preservation of the shuttle’s reusable solid rocket motors. All work will be performed at ATK’s facilities in Brigham City, Utah.
The new contract brings the total potential value of ATK’s cost-plus-award fee/incentive fee contract structure with NASA to $4.13 billion, based on an extension to the current space shuttle program launch schedule, which shifted the last two scheduled missions into fiscal year 2011.
