ITT Team Wins Up to $1.26B for NASA SpaceCom
A team led by ITT Corporation recently announced a 5-7 year contract to perform telemetry, tracking and command services for near-Earth missions under NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Space Communications Network Services (SCNS) contract. The contract has a base period of performance of 5 years and 3 months, with 2 one-year option periods, and a maximum potential value of $1.26 billion if all options are exercised.
ITT has provided engineering services for NASA’s near-Earth communications networks for over 25 years, and provided maintenance and operations support services for its Deep Space Network since 2003. The SCNS contract provides for…
The SCNS contract provides for the operation and maintenance of NASA’s Space Network, which includes Tracking and Data Relay Satellites and associated ground systems in the United States and Guam. ITT will also operate and maintain NASA’s Near Earth Network, which includes satellite communication and tracking stations located around the world. These networks provide most of the communications and tracking services for Earth-orbiting spacecraft, including the International Space Station, the space shuttle, the Hubble Space Telescope and the Earth Observing System satellites. ITT will perform mission network planning and integration services, systems and network engineering, operations, maintenance, and development and sustainment engineering at NASA space centers across the United States and around the world.
The work will be performed by ITT Advanced Engineering & Sciences in Herndon, VA and its ITT Systems in Colorado Springs, CO. Team partners include ASRC Aerospace Corporation, Boeing, Braxton Technologies, CSC, LJT & Associates Inc., Orbital Sciences Corporation, and SaiTech, Inc.
