Craig Technologies is proud to announce its continuing role in supporting human spaceflight operations at Johnson Space Flight Center, TX, as a subcontractor to KBR. KBR was awarded the follow-on Integrated Mission Operations Contract (IMOC III) and will provide flight crew operations, analyst training, mission preparation, and execution support to the International Space Station and future human spaceflight programs under NASA’s potential nine-year, $1.93 billion contract.

IMOC III is a single-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, which has a five-year base term and two two-year options that could run through the end of September 2032 if all options are exercised.

IMOC III covers spaceflight operations, avionics, and software and capability development and execution support for the flight operations directorate at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston and the agency’s exploration systems development and space operations mission directorates.

“Craig is honored to continue our support to human flight operations. We value our KBR partnership and relish Craig personnel’s responsibility on the IMOC III contract. Our flight controllers will be the ones that will be working when we return to the moon and move on to Mars. The challenge and accountability is a tremendous obligation, and we look forward to the future.” said Founder and CEO Carol Craig.

NASA will use the new contract to define requirements for commercial crew and cargo, human research, commercial low Earth orbit development, and other potential programs.  Craig has been a sub-contractor on all three IMOC contracts, starting as a partner to United Space Alliance (USA) in 2008 and teaming with KBR for IMOC II and IMOC III.
