NASA awards bridge contract for multidisciplinary engineering, technical services

NASA has awarded a bridge contract to AS and D Inc. of Greenbelt, Md., for continued multidisciplinary engineering and technical services until a follow-on contract is awarded at the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center, also in Greenbelt.

Known as Multidisciplinary Engineering and Technical Services II Bridge (METS 2 Bridge), this is a cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity contract with an ordering value ranging from a minimum of $5 million to a maximum of $90 million and a period of performance extending from Oct. 22 through April 30, 2015. There is one $20 million option for a one-year extension through Sept. 30, 2015.

AS & D Inc. will continue its systems engineering support for several operating divisions in Goddard’s Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate, including mechanical systems; software management; instrument systems and technology; electrical engineering; and mission engineering and systems analysis. This support includes the formulation, design, development, flight and non-flight fabrication, integration, test, verification, and operation of components, subsystems, systems, science instruments, and complete spacecraft for multiple projects.

Task orders issued under the METS 2 Bridge contract provide critical support to a wide range of NASA programs and projects including the James Webb Space Telescope; the Magnetosphere Multiscale mission; the Global Precipitation Measurement mission; Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites; the Ice, Cloud, Land Elevation Satellite II/Atlas mission; and the Mars Atmosphere Volatile Evolution mission.
