GREENBELT, Md. — NASA awarded a follow-on contract to Lockheed Martin Space Systems Corporation (LMSSC) for Mission Operations, Systems Engineering and Software (MOSES-II) for the Hubble Space Telescope.

This is a five-year cost-plus-award fee sole source contract with LMSSC with a value of $133,070,796, which includes the maximum award fee.

Under this contract, LMSSC will continue to maintain Hubble’s health and safety through the next phase of its science mission. The scope of this effort includes all elements of operations other than science operations, and systems engineering tasks required to maintain Hubble flight and ground systems.

Mission operations responsibilities include safe and efficient control and utilization of Hubble, maintenance and operation of its facilities and equipment, as well as creation, maintenance, and utilization of Hubble operations processes and procedures. Critical systems engineering responsibilities consist of optimizing mission system capabilities to ensure Hubble operations are effective to continue scientific results.
