Innovative Lunar Demonstrations Contracts Awarded by NASA to Six Private Firms

[![][1]][2]NASA has awarded Innovative Lunar Demonstrations Data (ILDD) contracts to six companies for the purchase of technical data resulting from industry efforts to develop vehicle capabilities and demonstrate end-to-end robotic lunar landing missions. The data from these contracts will inform the development of future human and robotic lander vehicles and exploration systems.

The ILDD Broad Agency Announcement resulted in multiple award firm-fixed price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts with a total value of up to $30.1 million over a period of up to five years. For each selected contractor, the minimum government purchase is $10,000, and the maximum government purchase is $10.01 million.

The contracts were awarded to: [**Astrobotic Technology Inc.,** ][3]Pittsburgh, Pa.; **[The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc][4]**., Cambridge, Mass.;[** Dynetics Inc.,** ][5]Huntsville, Ala.; [**Earthrise Space Inc.,** ][6]Orlando, Fla.; **Moon Express Inc**., San Francisco, Calif.; and, **[Team FREDNET][7]**, The Open Space Society, Inc., Huntsville, Ala.
