ASRC Aerospace to Provide Engineering Support on Air Force Contract
Greenbelt, Md., May 10, 2010 – ASRC Aerospace Corporation has been selected to support the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center's Launch and Range Systems Wing on a launch operations support contract. ASRC Aerospace is a key partner on the ManTech International Corporation team selected for the 10-year, $160 million systems engineering and integration contract.
The contract includes systems engineering and integration support for the current and future fleet of Air Force Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicles. Work will be performed at Space and Missile Systems Center headquarters at the Los Angeles Air Force Base, Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
“This is an important win for us because it gives ASRC Aerospace the opportunity to leverage our civilian space launch knowledge and experience to support Air Force launch programs,” said John Horan, ASRC Aerospace president. “We perform systems engineering work for NASA on the space shuttle and next-generation space launch vehicles and bring extensive expertise to this Air Force launch contract.”
Per the teaming arrangement, ASRC Aerospace will perform systems engineering support for the Atlas V and Delta IV rocket programs and will provide booster propulsion, avionics, structures and fairings, training, software engineering, and facilities and ground support equipment support.
ASRC Aerospace Corporation provides comprehensive engineering, technical, operations and maintenance, and professional services to government and industry. ASRC Aerospace, a subsidiary of ASRC Federal Holding Company, is a small disadvantaged business.
