 DALLAS, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Sterling Software, Inc. (NYSE: SSW) said its NASA Ames Division, headquartered in Palo Alto, Calif., has been selected for negotiations leading to award of a contract for a supercomputing capability to scientific users at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. The cost-plus-award-fee contract, estimated by NASA at $160 million, calls for a 4-year base period and a 3 year option period, plus options for increased capability. Sterling has provided a supercomputer capability to Ames under a predecessor contract since 1987.
