Sverdrup Technology selected for Marshall Center contract

October 05, 2000

Sverdrup Technology, Inc. of Tullahoma, Tenn., has been selected to provide engineering, science and technical services at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The contract, effective Oct. 15, includes a two-year performance period plus three one-year priced options. The contract has a potential value of $300 million over five years.

Under the contract, Sverdrup will provide engineering, scientific and technical services to Marshall Center's Engineering, Flight Projects, Science and Space Transportation Directorates; Systems Management Office, Space Shuttle Projects Office; and the Office of the Chief Financial Officer.

Technical services will support the Space Shuttle, advanced space transportation vehicles, the International Space Station, and ground- and space-based scientific research.

Marshall is NASA's lead Center for development of space transportation and propulsion systems. Marshall is also NASA's leader in microgravity research - conducting unique scientific studies in the near-weightlessness of space to improve life on Earth.
