NASA Extends Contract for Mission, Crew Operations Support

United Space Alliance To Continue to Provide Planning, Preparation, Training

NASA has awarded a contract extension to United Space Alliance of Houston to provide mission and flight crew operations support for the International Space Station and future human space exploration.

The $17.4 million extension of the Integrated Mission Operations Contract covers ground-based human spaceflight operations capability development and execution. This contract includes support for mission planning and preparation, crew and flight controller training, and real-time mission execution.

The initial period of extension runs from Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013. There is a $17.8 million option to extend the contract for another year effective from Oct. 1, 2013, through Sept. 30, 2014. The total potential value of the cost-plus-award-fee contract would be $35 million, if the option is exercised. This contract extends the original contract, which was in effect from November 2008 through September 2012.

United Space Alliance claims extensive experience in all aspects of the field. Headquartered in Houston, USA has employees working in Texas and Florida. The company is currently applying its broad range of capabilities to NASA’s International Space Station program as well as to space operations customers in the commercial space industry sectors.
