Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has received a $200M modification under the Aerospace, Research, Development, and Engineering Support Services contract with NASA to maintain systems used to carry out robotic space missions.

APL will provide full mission life cycle support through the modification, which increases the maximum potential value of an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to $1.7B, NASA said Wednesday.

The agency initially awarded the 10-year, ARDES IDIQ in 2006 and implemented an extension to the agencywide acquisition vehicle’s option term in 2014, extending the period end date to Dec. 31.

NASA said its Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama administers the contract and the agency obligates funds upon issuance of task orders.
