NASA Marshall Center selects Hernandez Engineering for $35 million contract

September 21, 2000

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., has selected Hernandez Engineering, Inc. of Houston, Tex., for a contract to provide mission services to Marshall's Safety and Mission Assurance Office.

The one-year cost-reimbursement contract is valued at $6,793,973, with four one-year priced options, for a total possible contract value of $35,895,684.

The Marshall Center's Safety and Mission Assurance Office is responsible for assuring the safety and mission assurance of all Marshall programs and projects.

The contracted services include management, personnel, equipment and supplies required to provide mission services associated with the planning, implementation and direction of safety, reliability, maintainability and quality assurance programs at Marshall.

The effort also involves activities at Stanford University, Stanford, Calif., on the Gravity Probe B space experiment to test Einstein's Theory of General Relativity.

Marshall is NASA's lead Center for development of space transportation and propulsion systems. New technologies are being explored to make space more accessible by reducing the cost of launching space vehicles while improving flight safety.

Marshall is also NASA's leader in microgravity research - conducting unique scientific studies in the near-weightlessness of space to improve life on Earth.
