Prime contractor InDyne Inc. added Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Information Technology unit to the Kennedy Integrated Services (KICS) contract in support of NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

NASA awarded the KICS deal to InDyne in September. With a total estimated value of $190.7 million, the five-year contract calls for InDyne to provide communication services to support three agency programs, including Payload Carriers and Launch Services, the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle.

Northrop Grumman IT will receive an estimated $7.5 million over five years for providing logistics, quality assurance and IT security. The company plans to hire an additional 23 employees at Kennedy Space Center for the contract.

"Northrop Grumman IT has already successfully teamed with InDyne on other contracts, including the Joint-Base Operations Support contract at Kennedy Space Center, which gives us significant expertise to support the KICS contract," said Gregg Donley, president of Technical Services for Northrop Grumman's IT sector.

The KICS contract is the first of five work packages contained in the Space Mission Communication and Data Services solicitation, which will succeed the current NASA Consolidated Space Operations contract.

KICS will also incorporate requirements from the Visual Information Technical Contract and the telephone service requirements of the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA.
