Teledyne Brown Gains Up To $568 Million NASA Contract
NASA exercised a five-year option with Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc. worth a maximum $568 million.
Teledyne Brown, of Huntsville, Ala., will provide continued systems development and operations support for the Science and Mission Systems Office at Marshall Space Flight Center, also in Huntsville.
The maximum potential value of the cost plus award fee contract that originally was awarded in 2002, including the option and incentive fees, is $568 million.
Teledyne Brown will continue to provide NASA payload development, operations and science technology research. The contract also provides for science, technical and engineering support to investigators in addition to management and administrative support. The research will further NASA science goals by developing, operating and maintaining facilities and payloads on the International Space Station and other space vehicles and carriers.
NASA determined the contract effort is still required and Teledyne Brown exhibited outstanding performance.
