NASA has selected MacLean Engineering & Applied Technologies of Houston to provide simulation model development for organizations at the agency’s Johnson Space Center, also in Houston.
This indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract has firm-fixed price and cost-plus fixed-fee task orders. Beginning July 1, the contract has a three-year base period followed by two one-year options and is valued at $ 49.7 million.
Simulation services include model development, integration, verification, problem support and other activities on numerous robotics platforms. Platforms include in-orbit robotic manipulator systems; advanced future robotic systems; and guidance, navigation and control of space-based vehicles for all flight phases, including rendezvous operations.
The primary purpose of these simulations is to address engineering analysis, operations and training requirements. The contract also provides development and support services for avionics and embedded flight software systems.
