NASA Extends Mission Operations Support Contract

HOUSTON -- NASA has awarded a $165 million contract extension to
Lockheed Martin Corp. of Gaithersburg, Md., to provide continued
mission control systems services, development, maintenance and
operations support as part of the Facilities Development and
Operations Contract, or FDOC.

Under the contract, Lockheed Martin provides support for the hardware,
software, data and displays systems used to train for and execute all
human spaceflight missions supported by the Mission Operations
Directorate at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. The contract
provides systems services support within the Christopher C. Kraft Jr.
Mission Control Center and the Jake Garn Mission Simulator and
Training Facility at Johnson, and at backup control centers.

The majority of the work will take place at or near Johnson.
Significant subcontractors include Cimarron Software Services Inc.
and United Space Alliance, both of Houston.

This extension exercises the first of two potential options for the
contract. The $755 million contract base period is from Jan. 1, 2009,
through Sept. 30, 2012. This option will extend the contract through
Sept. 30, 2013, and increase the total contract value to $919.5 million.
