CACI secures $150M contract to support NASA’s aerospace programs

CACI has received a four-year, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract valued at up to $150 million to continue its work with NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC).

The contract will focus on the provision of aerospace engineering, simulation, and software solutions for crewed spaceflight systems, says CACI. The program provides advanced aerospace engineering for crewed spacecraft systems, development of simulation and Virtual Reality (VR) applications, and software in support of human space flight.

The contract tasks will primarily be carried out in the Houston area in coordination with JSC’s Engineering Directorate, specifically the Software, Robotics, and Simulation Division.

CACI is expected to support various spacecraft systems, including robotics and dynamics; guidance, navigation, and control; avionics, and power. The contract scope also includes the development of software applications for in-flight systems, high-fidelity modeling and simulation, and virtual reality graphics for engineering analyses and astronaut training.
