12/15/08

San Diego defense contractor SAIC said today NASA has awarded the company a technology services contract to support its Constellation program at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. The company, also known as Science Applications International Corp., said the contract could be worth as much as $69 million over the next five years if all options are exercised. The Constellation program, which intends to return astronauts to the moon by 2020, calls for developing technologies needed to open the lunar frontier.
