CSC WINS $25 MILLION NASA JET PROPULSION LAB CONTRACT.

Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) has been awarded a contract to provide institutional services and support to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The two-year, $25 million contract provides for up to ten additional option years of support, with values to be negotiated.

CSC's support of JPL spans four decades, and the company has maintained a constant presence at JPL for more than 30 years. Under the new contract, CSC will provide a broad range of information technology infrastructure services to support JPL's computing, operational and communications needs at the primary JPL facility in Pasadena, Calif., and elsewhere. Support areas include network operations, enterprise system development and operations, telecommunications, hardware maintenance and system administration.

"CSC's first NASA contract was with JPL in 1961," said Dave Ziobro, vice president of NASA Programs in CSC's Civil Group. "We are honored to be a major partner in helping JPL meet its mission needs and continue to pioneer exploration of our solar system."

Teaming with CSC are QSS Group, Inc. of Lanham, Md., providing support in enterprise information systems; ERC, Inc. of Huntsville, Ala., providing system administration support; and SaiTech, Inc. of Huntsville, Ala., providing telecommunications support.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, managed by the California Institute of Technology, is NASA's lead center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Its spacecraft have visited all the planets in our solar system except Pluto, and JPL telescopes are observing distant galaxies in the universe to study how our solar system was formed. JPL also manages the worldwide Deep Space Network. JPL's main site is at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains near Pasadena, Calif., 12 miles northeast of Los Angeles.
