InDyne Wins Space Center IT Deal

NASA has selected McLean-Va.-based InDyne as the prime contractor for its Kennedy Integrated Communication Services (KICS) contract to support various programs at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC). Total estimated value of the contract is approximately $190.7 million.

Under the contract, InDyne will provide communications services at KSC in support of the space shuttle program, international space station program, payload carriers program and launch services program office payloads. InDyne will also provide center-wide business engineering logistics, facilities management, hardware and software integration and development for voice, video and data communications.

The KICS contract, with a period of performance of approximately five years, is a small business set-aside and the first of the five work packages contained in the Space Mission Communications and Data Services (SMCDS) solicitation.

SMCDS will succeed the current NASA Consolidated Space Operations Contract (CSOC). KICS will also incorporate the requirements from the Visual Information Technical Contract (VITC), and the telephone service requirements of the Outsourcing Desktop Initiative for NASA (ODIN).

Other members of the InDyne team include telecom affiliate Verizon Federal of Washington and subcontractor Northrop Grumman Technical Services of Herndon, Va.
