ASRC Federal awarded $1.2 Billion NASA contract for advanced computing

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has awarded ASRC Federal subsidiary InuTeq LLC the NASA Advanced Computing Services (NACS) contract. The single award, hybrid contract has a one-year base, followed by nine one-year options with a total potential value of approximately $1.2 billion.

As part of the contract, the company will provide a wide-range of high performance computing services in support of NASA's mission including high fidelity modelling and simulation, data analysis and visualisation, network operations and emerging computing technologies evaluation.

‘We are excited and honoured to further expand our work with NASA, working together to provide advanced computing services and solutions, solving mission-driven science and engineering challenges,’ said Mark Gray, ASRC Federal president and CEO. 

The NACS contract provides direct support the NASA Advanced Supercomputing Division at the Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California and the NASA Center for Climate Simulation at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
