Lockheed Martin out of the running for space-station resupply contract, says WSJ report | Denver Business Journal
Lockheed Martin Corp.’s Colorado-based space division is no longer in the competition for a contract to carry cargo to and from the International Space Station, according to a news report.
As the DBJ’s Greg Avery has reported, Jefferson County-based Lockheed Martin Space Systems (LMSS) had hoped to win some of a seven-year NASA contract to re-supply the space station starting by 2018. NASA is expected to budget between $1 billion and $1.4 billion annually for the service.
But a Wall Street Journal report says NASA has “quietly eliminated” Lockheed from competing for the contract over price issues. The WSJ report cites unnamed “people familiar with the matter.”
