  • 25-Aug-2010 04:27 EDT

NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland awarded a one-year contract option, to not exceed $50 million, to ASRC Aerospace Corp. of Greenbelt, MD, for engineering and scientific services. The contract covers engineering and scientific support services to Glenn's Lewis Field and Plum Brook Station in Sandusky, OH. ASRC will provide on-site support services for technical, engineering, and scientific tasks in the areas of aeronautics, microgravity science, space exploration, space power and propulsion, and related science and technology activities. The extension begins Sept. 1, 2010, and ends Aug. 31, 2011. It is the last of three one-year options provided for in the original contract awarded in August 2006.
