Lakota Wins Five-Year NASA Sub-Contract

Lakota Software Solutions, Inc. is proud to announce its selection for a five year sub-contract under TMC Technologies' Galaxy Global subsidiary to provide the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) Program with Software Assurance Tool (SWAT) Information Technology (IT) engineering and support services. This contract will promote continual improvement of NASA IV&V methods and tools in realizing efficiencies and high quality products in support of NASA missions and operations.

This award will boost the local northern West Virginia economy and provide new high technology jobs for the area. First District Representative David B. McKinley also expressed his gratitude for NASA's selection the West Virginia-based companies for the contract.

"I am pleased to see that our West Virginia-based high tech companies are successfully competing and creating more jobs for our area," McKinley said. "Jobs for West Virginians has been and will continue to be my top priority in Congress. Keeping federal operations such as NASA funded in West Virginia is one of the best ways to accomplish that goal in the I-79 corridor."

According to Fairmont NASA IV&V Director Greg Blaney, the Fairmont Facility's mission is to reduce the inherent risk in the Agency's ability to procure, develop, deploy and operate software within desired cost, schedule and performance goals.

"We look forward to enhancing our capacity to fulfill our mission with the support to be provided under this new SWAT contract," Blaney said.

The TMC team for this contract includes Global Science & Technology Inc. (GST), ADNET Systems Inc. (ADNET ), Lakota Software Solutions (Lakota), and Mid-Atlantic Technology Research and Innovation Center (MATRIC). All of the teaming partners either have headquarters in West Virginia or have a significant presence in the state.
