Vantage Systems on winning team for NASA PAAC III Contract

Vantage Systems, Inc. is part of a team led by ASRC Research and Technology Solutions (ARTS) that has been awarded a five-year contract by NASA to provide mission support services to the Goddard Space Flight Center's Flight Projects Directorate. The contract has a maximum value of $200 million. Under the Program Analysis and Control (PAAC III) contract, Vantage will use its expertise in a lead subcontract role to support current and future NASA programs, including the Hubble and James Webb space telescopes, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Magnetospheric Multi-Scale (MMS) Mission and numerous other space and earth science programs. Vantage's role will focus on business and information technology support. Vantage is already supporting both of these areas through other contracts at Goddard.

"We are proud to be part of the ARTS Team. This award is testament to their commitment to provide high level technical and support services to their customers," said Joseph Polk, president of Vantage Systems.
