On Tuesday, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center honored QinetiQ North America subsidiary Analex Corporation as its Large Business Prime Contractor of 2009. The honor, which recognizes outstanding engineering and technical management services to NASA, was earned by Analex’s work on the Expandable Launce Vehicle Integrated Support (ELVIS) contract to NASA’s Launch Services Program (LSP).
“This award was a great honor and a great surprise to us and we’re proud to continue our longstanding service to NASA, ” Analex Engineering Services VP Charlie Floyd said.
QinetiQ’s subsidiary offers support to NASA’s LSP team with launch vehicle system engineering and mission analysis oversight of commercial launch services contractors, as well as operating and maintaining communications and telemetry ground facilities at Cape Canaveral. Analex also provides base operations support for NASA-operated facilities at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the second-biggest space launch facility.
