NASA Awards KBR $1.9B Space Mission Support Contract

KBR has secured a potential nine-year, $1.93 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide support services for NASA space exploration missions.

Work under the Integrated Mission Operations Contract III involves avionics and software support, capability development, and the provision of spaceflight operations products and services.

The contract will benefit the NASA Johnson Space Center Flight Operations Directorate, the Exploration Systems Development Directorate and the Space Operations Mission Directorate.

The contract has a five-year base period with two two-year options. Work will begin on Oct. 1, NASA said Friday.

KBR has been securing several U.S. government contracts in recent months.

In late June, McCallie Associates awarded KBR a $387.1 million Systems Engineering Advanced Services II subcontract to help deliver mission support services to the Goddard Space Flight Center and the Wallops Flight Facility. As a subcontractor, KBR would work with McCallie in providing guidance, navigation and control systems and other support capabilities supporting positioning and navigation missions.

In May, KBR secured a $24 million U.S. Army task order to provide infrastructure and base operations support to communications sites in Japan. Work under the contract benefits the 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command.
