For more than 25 years, Booz Allen has been involved in the design and the assembly of the International Space Station (ISS). From the early Space Station Freedom days to the present-day ISS, our systems engineers have been engaged.
Assembly is one thing, but the job of maintaining the ISS is ongoing. Maintaining a complex ecosystem like the ISS is an ongoing enterprise and NASA needs logistics and safety expertise to ensure the space station continues to achieve its groundbreaking scientific research on the ‘final frontier.’
Booz Allen’s Modeling, Analysis, Visualization and Robotic Integration Center (MAVRIC) in Houston continues to assist planning activities for new systems and science cargo, while ensuring that these new items are designed and installed optimally to ensure crew safety inside the space station. In parallel, outside the station, our team assesses external science payload placements to optimize scientific research benefits, as well as monitor the constant visiting vehicle traffic to protect from collision with ISS structure.
