Arctic Slope Regional Corp. of Greenbelt, Md., will continue providing engineering and scientific support to NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland under a one-year contract option valued at $50 million, NASA announced Aug. 31.

The extension, which began Sept. 1, is the second of three one-year options under the contract, originally awarded in August 2006. The contract’s total value is now $200 million, NASA said.
