NASA has awarded a Crew Robotics Avionics and Vehicle Equipment (CRAVE) contract to Wyle for engineering services at Johnson Space Center. The contract allows for a wide variety of tasks in the areas of flight hardware and software development, nonflight/prototype hardware and software development, analysis, and sustaining engineering. The work will be performed at Wyle's facilities located next to JSC in Houston. The cost-plus-fixed-fee, performance-based contract runs through June 2015. Three other organizations were also awarded contracts by NASA and the combined total value of the four contracts is not to exceed $70 million. The CRAVE contract performs services for many different disciplines in the JSC Engineering Directorate such as extravehicular activity (EVA) tools and equipment, technology development for advanced EVA, extravehicular robotics, environmental control and life support systems, active thermal control systems, flight crew equipment, and crew health care systems. The equipment is for use on the Space Shuttle, International Space Station, and other advanced development programs.
