  • 03-Aug-2010 12:19 EDT

NASA has awarded a sole-source interim contract for electrical systems engineering services to MEI Technologies. This interim contract is a cost-plus-fixed-fee, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that will ensure program continuity and critical mission support. The contract will cover both existing and new requirements. Under this contract, MEI will provide electrical engineering support services for the study, design, development, fabrication, integration, testing, verification, and operations of hardware and software for space, air, and ground systems. This will include development and validation of new technologies to enable future missions in support of the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Task orders issued will provide critical support to a wide range of NASA missions and projects, including the James Webb Space Telescope, Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites, the Landsat Data Continuity Mission, Magnetospheric Multi-Scale Satellites, Global Precipitation Measurement, and others.
