The potential contract value to Lockheed Martin is about $250 million over the expected 10-year life of the contract. Lockheed Martin is responsible for flight hardware development, facilitation of life sciences research conducted on the International Space Station (ISS), human factors engineering to optimize tools and experiments for astronauts in zero gravity, radiation analysis, space food development, flight/ground crew training, and life sciences data archival.

"Lockheed Martin has provided life sciences support at Johnson Space Center for more than 30 years and has supported America's human spaceflight program for more than 50 years," said Rick Hieb , vice president of exploration and mission support for Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Solutions. "Together with Wyle, we apply that experience to ensure the high quality of science on human space missions and leverage the knowledge gained in space to enhance life here on Earth."

HHPC supports several NASA programs and offices including the ISS, Orion, Advanced Exploration Systems, Space Technology Mission Directorate, Human Research Program and Commercial Crew and Cargo programs. 

Among its accomplishments in support of NASA's bioastronautics program, Lockheed Martin has:

  • Supported every ISS crew through more than 60 experiments
  • Partnered with Wyle to provide the second generation treadmill, an additional exercise option for ISS crews
  • Delivered hardware for checking organic carbon content in the water from the ISS Water Recovery System, which purifies water from urine and perspiration
  • And supported the certification and delivery of Robonaut, the first robot on the ISS.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion.
