Computer Sciences Corp. will provide supercomputing support services to NASA under a task order awarded through the General Services Administration's Millennia contract. The estimated value of the five-year award is $113 million.
Under terms of the task order, CSC will provide supercomputing systems integration services to the NASA Center for Computational Sciences, the high-performance scientific computing facility operated by the Goddard Space Flight Center's Computational and Information Sciences and Technology Office in Greenbelt, Md.
The NCCS offers scientists and engineers the supercomputing resources and simulation tools needed to carry out NASA missions and to continue to make scientific discoveries.
The latest task order continues the company's 40-year relationship with NASA, said James Sheaffer, president of CSC's North American Public Sector business unit.
CSC of El Segundo, Calif., ranks No. 11
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
