JOHNSON SPACE CENTER — Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems of Houston will continue to provide support to International Space Station activities at Johnson Space Center after NASA exercised a $22 million, one-year extension option on the contract with the company. 

The company will provide services to support pressurized cargo requirements for vehicles visiting the International Space Station. The contracted services involve cargo mission planning, cargo coordination, stowage integration, cargo processing and international shipping.

The extension means the contract will run through March 31, 2015 and work under the contract will be performed at Johnson Space Center.
