The Aerospace Corporation received a sole-source nine-year follow-on contract with a total potential value of $621 million from NASA to provide NASA-wide Specialized Engineering, Evaluation and Test Services (NSEETS). The contract has a five-year base period that becomes effective on Oct. 1, with an additional four-year option.

The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract provides NASA with access to Aerospace resources and technical experts with deep understanding across the U.S. space enterprise. Aerospace aims to provide multidisciplinary engineering services, testing, consulting, contractor-on-site monitoring, and evaluation of projects and programs, including safety, mission assurance, cost, and schedule analyses through any phase of NASA’s programmatic lifecycle.

“We’re delighted to continue delivering critical engineering, evaluation, and test services to NASA that will advance and shape the future of our nation’s space exploration, science, and technology over the next decade,” said Edward Swallow, senior vice president of Aerospace’s Civil Systems Group. “As the leading federally funded research and development center operator for space, our unique technical expertise and objective analysis align well with NASA’s needs as it opens an exciting era of vital missions.”
