LM Receives Contract Extension To Further Support Human Spaceflight Missions At Johnson Space Center

Lockheed Martin will provide facilities development and operations support of human spaceflight missions at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston through at least September 30, 2016, under a contract extension. The approximately $340 million three-year extension includes a two-year base period with a one-year option. The contract value now exceeds $1 billion.

Under the Facilities Development and Operations Contract (FDOC), Lockheed Martin provides engineering and operations assistance for the hardware, software, data and display systems used to train for and execute all human spaceflight missions supported by the Mission Operations Directorate at JSC. The contract also provides systems services support within the Christopher C. Kraft Jr. Mission Control Center and the Jake Garn Mission Simulator and Training Facility, as well as backup control centers.

“At the heart of what makes Lockheed Martin unique is the commitment to taking on the hardest challenges and finding ways to solve them, and our longstanding support of NASA’s human spaceflight missions demonstrates that commitment,” said Rick Hieb, vice president of Exploration & Mission Support at Lockheed Martin’s Information Systems & Global Solutions business. “Our dedicated team looks forward to continued support of NASA's mission to pioneer the future of space exploration."

Lockheed Martin is also working with NASA to modernize the mission control center, training facilities and software applications for the next generation of human spaceflight. This includes commercial space services and future exploration programs, which will reduce the operational and maintenance costs. Completion is expected by the end of 2014.
