(Huntsville, Ala.); Integrated Concepts Research Corporation (Alexandria, Va.); Miltec Corporation (Huntsville, Ala.); Qualis Corporation (Huntsville, Ala.); and Snyder Technical Services (Huntsville, Ala.).

In making the announcement, Jacobs President Craig Martin stated, "As a key provider of spacecraft and vehicle systems and technology for NASA, Marshall Space Flight Center plays a critical role in carrying out our nation's vision for space exploration. We are delighted to continue our support to this important client as they work toward the technological achievements necessary to sustain habitation on the moon and to send human expeditions to Mars and beyond."

This contract award continues Jacobs' long history of support to NASA, including current contracts at six other NASA centers: Langley Research Center, Johnson Space Center, Stennis Space Center, Kennedy Space Center, Glenn Research Center, and Ames Research Center.
