NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston has negotiated a
contract modification with Lockheed Martin Space Operations
Co. that includes the acquisition of operational software for
approximately $60.3 million.

The software supports requirement changes for the Mission
Control Center and the Integrated Planning System. The
changes resulted from schedule adjustments to the
International Space Station assembly sequence, particularly
changes to the STS-98 and STS-110 missions.

The work for the contract modification will be done primarily
in Houston.
