Boeing announced that NASA has awarded the company an extension to the International Space Station (ISS) contract for sustaining engineering. The extension is valued at $1.24 billion over a five-year period. Under the extension, which begins Oct. 1, Boeing will provide sustaining engineering for hardware and software on the U.S. segment of the ISS and for common hardware and software available to the international partners. The work will also include management of ISS subsystems, analytical integration and flight support, on-orbit engineering support, monitoring and trending system performance, and anomaly resolution, specialty engineering, and oversight of ongoing maintenance. Boeing will perform the work at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston; Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL; and Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL; as well as at Boeing sites in Houston, Huntsville, and Huntington Beach, CA.
