NASA Awards Bridge Contract For Flight Dynamics Support Services

NASA has awarded the Flight Dynamics Support Services (FDSS) Bridge contract for engineering services to a.i. solutions Inc., Lanham, Md. This contract is necessary to continue performance at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. until the Flight Dynamics Support Services II contract is awarded.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity basic contract has a minimum ordering value of $500,000 and a maximum ordering value of $20 million with a period of performance from March 14 through March 13, 2015. There is also an option to extend the period of performance from March 14, 2015, through June 13, 2015, with a maximum ordering value of $5.4 million.

The contractor will continue to provide flight dynamics and attitude control operations engineering support and analysis and related work to the Mission Engineering and Systems Analysis Division's Navigation and Mission Design Branch and Attitude Control Systems Engineering Branch, including the Flight Dynamics Facility, and related organizations, as required, for both in-house and out-of-house spacecraft programs.

Task orders issued under the FDSS Bridge contract provide critical support to a wide range of NASA's missions and projects including: James Webb Space Telescope, the Magnetosphere Multi-scale Mission, the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites, Deep Space Climate Observatory and the Mars Atmosphere Volatile Evolution (MAVEN).
