The Titan Corporation
announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary Titan Systems Corporation has
been awarded two, five-year Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), each having a
potential value of $100 million for software Independent Verification and
Validation (IV&V) services in support of specified NASA Programs.
Systems was the only company selected and included in these two program domain

Issued by the NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, one agreement supports
multiple NASA centers including Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA; Glenn
Research Center, Cleveland, OH; Langley Research Center, Hampton, VA; and the
Goddard Space Flight Center Earth Sciences, Greenbelt, MD.
Against this
agreement’s $100 million ceiling, NASA has initially identified approximately
$27 million in services for Titan.

The second $100 million BPA provides IV&V services to the Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena, CA.
For this agreement, approximately $59 million in
IV&V services have been identified.
Each BPA is for five years, which
includes a base year and four one-year options.

Scheduled to begin this month, these efforts are part of NASA’s program to
improve mission success and software quality of diverse earth and space
science missions and critical ground systems, such as the National
Polar-Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System and the JPL Mars
Exploratory missions.
These BPA contracts mitigate software development and
operational risks through systems analyses, tests, and evaluations of system
designs and implementations for NASA critical flight and ground systems

The work will be performed at the NASA IV&V facility in Fairmont, WV, and
at seven NASA Centers and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Management and
execution of both BPAs will be centralized at the NASA IV&V facility and Titan
office in Fairmont, WV.

“We are pleased to continue our long-term relationship with NASA, and we
salute NASA, our dedicated employees, and Senator Robert Byrd’s leadership for
consistently endeavoring to make NASA the preeminent organization it is,” said
Gene Ray, Titan’s Chairman, President and CEO.
