HAMPTON, Va., (NASA) — NASA has increased the value of a current contract supporting research and development in structures and materials and aerodynamic, aerothermodynamic and acoustics technology for aerospace vehicles by nearly $20 million. The modification brings the value of the contract to $58.75 million.

The multiple award, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract was awarded to Analytical Services & Materials, Inc., Hampton, Va.; Boeing Company, Huntington Beach, Calif.; Lockheed Martin Corp., Palmdale, Calif.; and Northrop Grumman Corp., El Segundo, Calif. in August 2004. The period of performance ends in February 2010.

Due to unanticipated requirements, the current ceiling of $39 million has been reached. The modification allows critical requirements of the Agency and Langley Research Center to be met and serves as a bridge to allow sufficient time to complete the competitive follow-on acquisition. Work will continue to be done at each of the company locations.
