NASA on Feb. 22 awarded a contract worth up to $327.5 million to Analytical Mechanics Associates Inc. of Hampton, Va., to support research and technology development at the agency’s Langley Research Center there.

The Technology, Engineering and Aerospace Mission Support 2, or TEAMS 2, contract runs five years, including options, and is designed to support multiple NASA missions, including Langley’s work on the Space Launch System and Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle. The contract will also support NASA’s Space Technology Program “where we are working on things like deployable/inflatable structures … and Radiation Protection,” NASA Langley spokesman Rob Wyman said in a Feb. 24 email.

Minneapolis-based Alliant Techsystems was the prime contractor for the TEAM 1 contract, Wyman said.

Meanwhile, NASA has signed its final contract option for a separate engineering services contract supporting the Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Ala.

InfoPro Corp. will continue supporting Marshall through February 2013 under a one-year, $45.7 million contract extension announced Feb. 21. Huntsville-based InfoPro technicians have been supporting Marshall operations under a $150 million contract awarded in 2008.
