Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) received a NASA contract worth up to $750 million, NASA announced.
The five-year contract with APL, of Laurel, Md., with the possibility of extensions totaling another five years, will allow for procurement of services for aerospace research, development and engineering in support of the NASA mission.
Under this contract, APL will provide NASA with expertise in space systems engineering, systems test and evaluation, information technology, simulation, modeling and operations analysis.
APL is one of three government or university affiliated institutions with the capability to perform all aspects of robotic space missions. This contract will provide a means to preserve this essential capability at APL, consistent with NASA’s evolving needs.
