Computer Sciences Corporation announced today that it has been awarded a contract to provide aviation services support to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The Johnson Space Center's Aircraft Maintenance and Modification Program (AMMP) contract has a five-year base period, which includes three work expansion options during the five-year term. CSC estimates the value of the contract to be approximately $228 million if all options are exercised.
Under the award, CSC's DynCorp Technical Services (DTS) organization will continue to provide comprehensive maintenance and modification services in support of NASA aircraft assigned to the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas; the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.; and the Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va. Collectively, the aircraft assigned to these centers represent more than 80 percent of NASA's aircraft fleet.
CSC's DTS will also provide flight operation, technical data collection and Space Shuttle simulation support services under the contract's work expansion options, and may provide AMMP services to other NASA centers as required by the agency. DTS has provided services under the AMMP contract since 1994.
"Over the past 10 years, we have demonstrated that we have the experience, commitment and personnel to produce the results NASA demands," said CSC's DTS President Ben Medley. "With this new contract we are committed to delivering the same high level of service through 2009."
Among the aircraft DTS will maintain are the two 747s specially modified to transport the Space Shuttle, several Gulfstream jets modified to simulate the flight characteristics of the Space Shuttle, NASA's fleet of T-38 trainers and many other unique aircraft used by NASA.
