Science Applications International Corp. will provide biomedical, engineering, occupational health and technical support services to NASA at the Johnson Space Center under a potential $1.8 billion contract.
Houston-based JSC serves as the agency’s center for U.S. astronauts and oversees space exploration programs and activities aboard the International Space Station, SAIC said Thursday.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award has five base years, one three-year option and one two-year option.
“We are proud and honored to play a role in current and future human spaceflight missions, and to assist NASA in enhancing collaboration across health and life sciences customers,” said John Jumper, SAIC chairman and CEO.
SAIC will perform fundamental and applied biomedical research and support the center’s human health and performance laboratory operations.
The company will also help to integrate ISS human systems, develop biomedical flight hardware, monitor space environments monitoring and integrate hardware and payloads.
