Peraton Inherits $339M Follow-On Contract to Support NASA’s Scientific Balloon Operations

Peraton will provide management support to a NASA facility that hosts balloon-based scientific experiments under a potential seven-year, $339.1 million contract.

The space agency officially named Northrop Grumman Systems Corp. as the awardee for the follow-on NASA Balloon Operations Contract. Peraton said in a LinkedIn post it picked up the original award and the follow-on bid through an acquisition in 2021.

Locations of work include the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility in Texas, the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and a company-run facility.

NOBC II tasks encompass facility maintenance, balloon flight operations and engineering support work.

The base performance period is scheduled to commence on June 1 and continue through May 31 next year. NASA said the award has three option periods that would extend work until May 31, 2029.
