Cargo contract lands Lockheed $165 million

Lockheed Martin Space Operations has won a $165 million contract from NASA to support cargo mission services for the International Space Station.

Lockheed Martin Space Operations (LMSO) has won a NASA contract to support cargo mission services for the International Space Station (ISS). The potential value of the contract to Lockheed Martin is about $165 million.

Work under the contract will include planning, preparation and integration of cargo slated for transport to and from the International Space Station.

If options under the contract are exercised, Lockheed Martin would also provide stowage integration services to the Space Shuttle Program, NASA prepacked-cargo processing for the Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle and NASA prepacked-cargo processing for the European Automated Transfer Vehicle, which are planned to provide future logistics support to the ISS.

The basic period of the cost-plus-award-fee contract is four years and nine months, with an estimated value of $108.5 million. Two one-year extension options to the basic period are available and would bring the total contract value to $165.8 million.

Work on the contract will be performed mainly at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston and NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
