Analytical Mechanics Associates to Help NASA Build ‘Hypervelocity’ Spacecraft Tech

space-engineeringNASA has awarded Analytical Mechanics Associates a potential five-year, $43 million contract to develop and engineer a technology for manufacturing  hypervelocity space vehicles.

The contract falls under NASA’s Entry Systems Technology Research and Development initiative and carries an initial value of $2.2 million over a two-year base term and three option years, the agency said Tuesday.

NASA aims to build spacecraft capable of traveling at a very high velocity into the Earth’s atmosphere and to other planets, including Mars, through the program.
