NASA has added Virgin Galactic and Masten Space Systems as awardees on a $45M multiple-award contract to help the agency test payloads on suborbital reusable launch vehicles as part of the Flight Opportunities program.

Six companies now hold positions on the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for flight and integration services to support U.S. government research, NASA said Tuesday.

Blue Origin, UP Aerospace, Raven Aerostar and World View are the other participants in the program with the goal of ensuring system readiness for space missions.

The Flight Opportunities initiative falls under the agency's space technology mission directorate and has showcased more than 700 payloads over the past nine years.

Virgin Galactic and Masten will perform contract work through July 31, 2023.
