NASA has decided to exercise a five-year option with Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., Huntsville, Ala., for continued systems development and operations support for the Science and Mission Systems Office at the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville.

The maximum potential value of the cost plus award fee contract, including the option and incentive fees, is $568 million.

The company will continue to provide NASA payload development, operations and science technology research. The contract also provides science, technical and engineering support to investigators in addition to management and administrative support. The research will further NASA’s science goals by developing, operating and maintaining facilities and payloads on the International Space Station and other space vehicles and carriers.

The contract was awarded in 2002 and contained a five-year option period that NASA could choose to exercise if support was still required and performance warranted. NASA determined the contract effort is still required and Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., exhibited outstanding performance.
