Lockheed Martin's IT division in Seabrook, Md., will provide support for desktop, facsimile and printer services. The space agency's headquarters also will be able to order other services and commercial products through catalog sales.
The NASA order comes on top of Lockheed Martin's recent win of a recompetition for the agency's Outsourced Desktop Initiative for NASA contract, known as ODIN. The company will continue its work for the next three years at four NASA science and research center: Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.; Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif.; Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio; and Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va.

The company also holds contracts at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.; Johnson Space Center in Houston; Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla.; Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.; and Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
Lockheed Martin's information services division employs 11,000 of the parent company's 130,000 workers worldwide. Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., the defense giant had 2003 revenue of $31.8 billion. It has held the No. 1 position on Washington Technology's Top 100 list of federal prime contractors for the past 10 years.
