Lockheed to continue providing cargo mission services for ISS


The International Space Station

HOUSTON (BNS): Lockheed Martin will continue to support cargo mission services for the International Space Station (ISS).

The contract is worth $171M, with a three year base and additional options running until 2017.

Lockheed Martin proposed in its bid an innovative set of new tools and processes to help NASA lower the overall cost of processing ISS cargo.

As part of the contract, Lockheed Martin will support planning, coordination, preparation and packing of standardized containers for cargo missions to and from the International Space Station.

The Lockheed Martin team will provide the required sustaining engineering, logistics, configuration management, as well as safety and mission assurance functions for cargo to be delivered to the space station.

As pre-packed cargo will be shipped to launch sites within the United States, French Guiana, Kazakhstan, and Japan, this effort also includes arranging ground transportation and addressing import regulations.

The new contract also includes Flight Crew Equipment (FCE) support to buy, maintain and prepare items the crew requires for the ISS, such as clothing, housekeeping and personal hygiene items, audio/visual equipment and laptop computers.
