Nasa has increased its investment on the multidisciplinary engineering and technology support (METS) contract with Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies by $40m to approximately $339m.

SGT has been performing tasks for formulation, design, development, flight and non-flight fabrication, integration, testing and verification of space flight and ground system hardware and software.

The contract includes development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions for the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate at Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

The tasks support Nasa missions and projects including the lunar reconnaissance orbiter, the solar dynamics observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope, the geostationary environmental operational satellites-R, polar operational environmental satellites and others.
