KBR has been awarded a $570.3 million cost-plus-award-fee Marshall Operations, Systems, Services and Integration (MOSSI) contract by NASA to develop and execute spaceflight operations at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the company reported on Monday

"This long-term contract further enhances our prominence in supporting space operations and we look forward to working with the amazing people at Marshall to advance their missions. This award demonstrates our ability to expand our portfolio and fuel continued organic growth," said Stuart Bradie, KBR President and CEO. 

Under the indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, KBR will provide highly technical, mission-focused, high-impact services. The contract has one base year followed by seven option years. KBR will perform International Space Station payload operations and support testing of the Space Launch System rocket.

The work will support spacecraft, payload, satellite and propulsion systems operations, as well as multi-program facilities, including the Huntsville Operations Support Center, and is an exciting addition to our International Space Station operations work at Johnson Space Center.

KBR will provide the management, personnel, equipment and supplies for around-the-clock mission operations and ground systems development services. The company's work will bolster numerous NASA programs, payload developers, educational institutions, international partner space agencies and commercial partners.

"KBR is thrilled to have won this competitive bid to partner with Marshall Space Flight Center," said Bradie added. 

NASA reported the award in early June, stating that SGT, a business unit of KBR, will also provide equipment, supplies and personnel to agency programs, project offices, commercial and international partners, payload developers and educational institutions.
