Moffett Field, CA | Posted on August 25th, 2011

The option period has a maximum value of $60 million. This is a cost plus fixed fee contract. The exercised option will continue performance from Sept. 29, 2011, to Sept. 28, 2012. The contract consists of a three-year base period and three, one-year options.
The company will provide all resources, other than those identified as provided by the government, as necessary to support scientific research, develop technologies, build applications, infuse and deploy advanced information systems technology at Ames.

The company also will provide research support in artificial intelligence, knowledge-based systems, knowledge discovery, data mining, soft computing (including neural networks and fuzzy control methods), nanotechnology information processing and sensors.
The contractor will provide research support for biologically inspired computer systems and human extensions; prognostic signal analysis; model-based diagnostic reasoning; software fault diagnostic and automated software methodologies; fault-tolerant computing hardware and networking.

In addition it will provide tele-presence/control of remote, mobile platforms; autonomous and adaptive control; integrated design; human-centered computing; system design of a distributed heterogeneous network of workstations; distribution of research information in various formats and forums.
