Contract May Be Worth Up To $28 Million
Boeing was awarded a NASA contract Friday for engineering and
technical support of several specialized research aircraft at
NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center.
The sole-source, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity
contract could be worth up to $28 million during its five-year
performance period now through April 2012, according to NASA
Boeing will provide engineering and technical support for four
heavily-modified high-performance aircraft: two F-15s and two
F/A-18s. The aircraft have been modified to conduct a variety of
flight research missions in support of NASA and other government
agencies and private industry.
Technical assistance under the
contract may include providing design support for unique Boeing
aircraft systems and assisting in ground support operations and
reviewing additional planned aircraft modifications.
Boeing may be required to modify control systems hardware and
software, perform modifications, and fabricate experimental
hardware for these aircraft, along with performing specific
research studies using Boeing-developed models and simulators.
In addition, the contract calls for Boeing to provide similar
support, as needed, for other Boeing-built aircraft that NASA may
acquire during the contract period.
