NASA has awarded a Crew Robotics Avionics and Vehicle Equipment (CRAVE) contract to Wyle for engineering services at Johnson Space Center. The contract allows for a wide variety of tasks in the areas of flight hardware and software development, non-flight/prototype hardware and software development, analysis, and sustaining engineering.

The work will be performed at Wyle's facilities located next to Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

The cost-plus-fixed-fee, performance-based contract runs through June 2015. Three other organizations were also awarded contracts by NASA and the combined total value of the four contracts is not to exceed $70 million.

The CRAVE contract performs services for many different disciplines in the Johnson Space Center Engineering Directorate such as extravehicular activity (EVA) tools and equipment, technology development for advanced EVA, extravehicular robotics, environmental control and life support systems, active thermal control systems, flight crew equipment, and crew health care systems.

The equipment is for use on the Space Shuttle, International Space Station and other advanced development programs.

"Wyle has a longstanding and successful relationship working with NASA and we are proud that NASA selected us to provide these unique and challenging engineering services needed for the CRAVE activities," said Bob Ellis, group president of the Wyle Integrated Science and Engineering Group.

"We look forward to developing this new collaboration with a focus on mission success."
