Four Companies Awarded NASA Rapid Spacecraft Aquisition Services Contracts

NASA has selected four companies to provide spacecraft and related services, including acquiring spacecraft components and equipment to support its Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
ARGOTEC Inc. (Largo, Maryland), Blue Canyon Technologies LLC. (Lafayette, Colorado), General Atomics (San Diego, California), and Kongsberg NanoAvionics US LLC, (Riverdale, Maryland), were all awarded Rapid Spacecraft Acquisition IV (Rapid IV) On-Ramp III contracts.
The multiple awards, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity base contracts, are firm-fixed-price with a total combined value of USD6 billion. These multi-agency contracts may support other NASA centres and federal agencies. The performance period is through August 31, 2025, with the potential to extend the effective ordering period until August 31, 2030. The spacecraft designs, related items, and services may be tailored, as needed, to meet the unique needs of each mission.
The Rapid IV contract includes an on-ramp feature, which allows the original solicitation to be periodically re-opened to give new vendors the opportunity to propose flight-proven spacecraft designs. On ramps also give vendors already awarded a Rapid IV contract the opportunity to propose additional flight-proven spacecraft designs and/or update their existing catalogue designs.
The work will be primarily performed at the contractor’s facilities. However, additional work will be required at the government launch site.
