NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston has negotiated a contract modification with Lockheed Martin Space Operations Co. that includes the acquisition of operational software for approximately $60.3 million.
The software supports requirement changes for the Mission Control Center and the Integrated Planning System. The changes resulted from schedule adjustments to the International Space Station assembly sequence, particularly changes to the STS-98 and STS-110 missions.
The initial Consolidated Space Operations Contract was awarded in 1998 to provide space operations services, supporting both mission and data services for NASA's space flight and science programs. The cost-plus-award-fee contract has a five-year basic period and includes a five-year priced option.
The work for the contract modification will be done primarily in Houston.
