COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (NanoRacks PR) – NanoRacks is pleased to announce that the Company has been awarded a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Professional Services Schedule (00CORP). As a services provider under this contract, NanoRacks is able to provide its customer-driven in-space services to federal agencies at a pre-negotiated fixed rate.
NanoRacks, the commercial market leader in low-Earth orbit, is offering its flagship services within the GSA schedule, centered around microgravity research and International Space Station and other launch vehicle-based CubeSat and MicroSat deployment opportunities.
“Our services are unique compared to others offering in-space opportunities on GSA,” says NanoRacks Commerce Director, Adrian Mangiuca. “We are offering both microgravity research and satellite deployment opportunities, allowing each agency the flexibility to find a space solution that’s custom to their needs. Whether your government agency requires earth observation, remote sensing, or launch services – we’re ready to provide an optimal solution for you.”
Through this contract, the federal government recognizes NanoRacks, among other organizations on GSA, as a trusted launch services vendor and facilitates a more efficient procurement process. This accelerated procedure saves taxpayer time and money and helps to bring government requirements into space cost-effectively. In addition to increasing procurement efficiency, the GSA schedule acts to harmonize and secure full compliance with all Federal Acquisition Regulations.
NanoRacks has launched numerous United States government payloads to the International Space Station, including Army and Air Force technology demonstration missions, NASA hardware, and government-funded CubeSats, such as those for the NASA CubeSat Launch Initiative’s Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) Missions.
To date, NanoRacks has launched over 600 payloads to the Space Station, including over 200 small satellites. The Company is growing a number of non-International Space Station services as well.
