NanoRacks to Provide Smallsat Deployment for Federal Agencies
NanoRacks has been awarded a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Professional Services Schedule (00CORP). As a services provider under this contract, NanoRacks will be able to provide its in-space services to federal agencies at a pre-negotiated fixed rate.
NanoRacks is offering its flagship services within the GSA schedule, centered around microgravity research and International Space Station (ISS) and other launch vehicle-based CubeSat and MicroSat deployment opportunities. Through this contract, the federal government facilitates a more efficient procurement process. This accelerated procedure saves taxpayer money by helping to bring government requirements into space more cost effectively. In addition to increasing procurement efficiency, the GSA schedule acts to harmonize and secure full compliance with all federal acquisition regulations.
NanoRacks has launched numerous United States government payloads to the ISS, including Army and Air Force technology demonstration missions, NASA hardware, and government-funded CubeSats. To date, NanoRacks has launched more than 600 payloads to the space station, including more than 200 smallsats.
