Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has received a potential 10-year, $2B contract to help NASA  develop technology concepts and analyze data for robotic space missions.

The Aerospace, Research, Development, and Engineering Support Services II contract has a minimum ordering value of $50M and a maximum ordering value $1B over the five-year base period, NASA said Wednesday.

ARDES II would reach its potential value if the agency exercises the five-year option period. Contract work commenced Monday.

The university-affialiated research organization will help NASA engineer, test and evaluate space systems, perform information technology, simulation and modeling tasks and analyze operations.

APL secured the first iteration of the contract in October 2006.
