NASA awards LMSSC Hubble Space Telescope contract

Lockheed Martin Space Systems Corporation (LMSSC) has been awarded a follow-on contract from NASA for the Mission Operations, Systems Engineering and Software (MOSES-II) for the Hubble Space Telescope.

Under this five-year contract, which is valued at $133m (£83m), LMSSC will continue to maintain the health and safety of Hubble throughout the next phase of its science mission.

The scope of this effort includes all elements of operations other than science operations, as well as systems engineering tasks required to maintain Hubble flight and ground systems.
