NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston has awarded a
$42.5 million contract modification to SPACEHAB, Inc. to
supplement support for the STS-116 and STS-118 Space Shuttle
missions to the International Space Station, currently
scheduled for 2003.

This extension includes two space station Logistics Single
Module missions providing supplies to crews on board the
space station.

SPACEHAB provides mission support hardware and related
services including flight hardware, module transporter,
ground support equipment, ground payload processing
facilities, module trainers and mockups to support flight
crew training and mission integration services.

This modification brings the total of the initial firm-fixed-
price Research and Logistics Mission Support Contract to
$224.5 million. The contract, awarded in December 1997 and
managed by Johnson, involves work in Huntsville, Ala., and at
the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
