AMERICAN SYSTEMS has won a multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract award to perform engineering and technical support services for NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California.
NASA awarded the contract to New Horizons Aeronautics, or NHAero, a joint venture led by AMERICAN SYSTEMS with small business partner Millennium Engineering & Integration Company.
The 8-year contract is worth a potential $264 million. Work begins Feb. 1.
Under the deal, the companies will provide engineering expertise for research, flight, and mission operations; engineering support for facilities and safety/mission assurance; and support for various technical functions including project planning and control, range support, lab support, and special studies.
“We are proud to be supporting NASA’s mission through this contract,” said Peter Smith, president and CEO of AMERICAN SYSTEMS. “The Armstrong Flight Research Center plays an important role in advancing atmospheric flight and ensuring the safety of its crews and aircraft—we know what’s at stake.”
The Armstrong Flight Research Center is NASA’s premier installation for atmospheric flight research. The center is named in honor of Neil A. Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon during the historic Apollo 11 mission in 1969.
