This firm fixed-price contract has a potential total value of $60.3 million. The LH2 system upgrade includes integration of a new minimum 1.25-million-gallon LH2 storage sphere, associated vaporizers, flare stack and propane system, fill manifold, piping, valves, and controls.

Launch Complex 39B is undergoing a metamorphosis from top to bottom to support the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft for their first integrated uncrewed flight test.
