Raytheon has won a $101.9 million contract extension to continue providing operations, maintenance and engineering services to NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab and Space Vehicle Mockup Facility.
The extension, awarded by the Johnson Space Center, will last up to four years, the company said in a release.
The NBL is the deep water pool astronauts use for spacewalk training, and the SVMF hosts full-size mockups and simulators for the International Space Station, Orion capsule and commercial space modules, Raytheon said.
Under the contract, Raytheon will continue working at both facilities running real-time mission scenarios that help International Space Station astronauts deal with spaceflight challenges.
