NASA EXTENDS CONTRACT FOR MISSION, CREW OPERATIONS SUPPORT

WASHINGTON -- NASA has awarded a $165 million contract extension to 
United Space Alliance of Houston to provide mission and flight crew 
operations support for the International Space Station and human 
space exploration activities after the space shuttle is retired. 

The one-year extension exercises an option on the Integrated Mission 
Operations Contract, which covers ground-based human spaceflight 
operations capability development and execution. 

This includes support to mission planning and preparation, crew and 
flight controller training and real-time mission execution. The 
initial period of the contract is from Nov. 1, 2008, through Sept. 
30, 2011. The extension will be effective from Oct. 1, 2011, through 
Sept. 30, 2012. 

The cost-plus-award-fee contract's initial value was $207 million. The 
extension will increase its total value to $373 million.
