WASHINGTON, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- A bridge contract for continued engineering support services for NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has been issued to AS and D Inc. of Maryland.
The bridge contract, which extends company work to April 30, 2015, is a cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award. Its ordering value is $5 million to $90 million.
NASA said included in the contract is an option for a one-year extension of service.
Under the contract, AS and D Inc. will continue its systems engineering support for several operating divisions in Goddard's Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate. Included are mechanical systems, software management, instrument systems and technology, electrical engineering, and mission engineering and systems analysis.
Work covers the formulation, design, development, flight and non-flight fabrication, integration, test, verification, and operation of components, sub-systems and instruments.
NASA said the contract task orders under the bridging contract will support NASA programs such as the James Webb Space Telescope and Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites.
