Orion Gets Recovery Act Money

NASA Solicitation: Recovery Act Funds for Orion Spacecraft - Contract Modification

"NASA applied funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 to work on the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle Project. The total amount is $165.9 million. This is a modification to an existing contract with Lockheed Martin Corporation of Denver, Colorado. Funds will be used to reduce schedule risk by initiating purchases of long lead components and moving forward with the design of Orion engineering development units. These items include avionics systems integrated circuit builds, procuring communication systems hardware, avionics integrated lab testing infrastructure, docking hatches, numerous mechanisms, advanced window materials and Propulsion and Environmental Control System units."
