NASA’s Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, Virginia, was established as the U.S.’s first civilian aeronautical research facility in 1917, and was the initial home of the first astronauts, the Mercury 7. Today, LaRC is working to design and test a new launch abort system for the next generation space capsules. In addition, LaRC researchers are focusing on some of the biggest technical challenges of our time, including global climate change, access to space and revolutionizing airplanes, and the air transportation system.
In October 2010, DB teamed with Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT), Inc. to provide NASA’s LaRC with computing support services for complex information technology (IT) systems and applications. The five-year maximum value of the LaRC Information Technology Enhanced Services (LITES) task order contract is $183 million.
For the LITES contract, DB provides a variety of support and services for the LaRC Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO). Specifically, DB’s LITES team:
