Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) has received a potential four-year, $101.9 million extension to its contract with NASA‘s Johnson Space Center to provide services to the Neutral Buoyancy Lab and Space Vehicle Mockup Facility.

The company said Friday it will provide continued maintenance, operations and engineering support for the facilities.

Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s information, intelligence and services business, noted that the company’s services are in support of the human spaceflight mission.

NASA uses the facilities to train International Space Station astronauts in spaceflight scenarios by providing a deep water pool for spacewalk training and mock-ups of the space environment, Raytheon said.

The company added that it will also provide service life extension programs for the mock-ups and continue facilitating commercial usage of NBL.
