MARCH 6—NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland recently awarded a set-aside contract for scientific research and development services worth up to $140 million to a small Maryland company.

QSS Group Inc. of Lanham, Md., will design and develop aeronautical and space systems and space flight hardware, perform mathematical and theoretical analyses and conduct tests.

The work will support Glenn Center activities such as wind tunnel testing of new air- and space-flight concepts, fine-tuning satellite transmissions of data between Earth and NASA spacecraft, and improving Earth-observing satellite systems.

The five-year agreement consolidates two existing contracts, NASA officials said.
