RELEASE: 03-419

NASA, UNITED SPACE ALLIANCE AGREE TO CONTRACT ADJUSTMENT

     NASA agreed to a $40.2 million modification to the Space 
Flight Operations Contract with United Space Alliance in 
support of the Space Shuttle Cockpit Avionics Upgrade (CAU).

The modification settles a request for equitable adjustment 
made by United Space Alliance related to a variety of changes 
in the development of the CAU. This upgrade is planned to 
enhance the Space Shuttle cockpit with more intuitive displays 
that increase the crew's situational awareness and reduce 
pilot workload during critical phases of flight. The 
adjustment covers new requirements for flight hardware burn-
in, independent assessment support, additional display 
computations, test and evaluation changes, and delays in the 
authority to proceed, as well as other efforts in support of 
the previously authorized CAU.

The negotiated equitable adjustment was settled with an 
increase in cost of $40.2 million to the $12.9 billion Space 
Flight Operations Contract held by United Space Alliance. Work 
on this effort is performed at facilities in Houston and the 
Kennedy Space Center, Fla. Major subcontractor facilities are 
located in Huntington Beach, Calif. and Oswego, N.Y.
