Dynetics Wins NASA Contract for Laser Air-Monitoring System

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
WASHINGTON, D.C., June 1, 2021 — Applied science and information technology company Dynetics Inc. was awarded a contract to produce a laser air-monitoring system (LAMS) for NASA’s Orion spacecraft, beginning with the Artemis III mission.

The LAMS contract is valued at $17.8 million for production of the Artemis III unit, as well as a qualification unit, design modifications, and long-lead procurement items in support of the Artemis IV and V missions. It is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract with a maximum potential of $90 million in the event that additional flight units or components become necessary. The period of performance extends through 2025.

LAMS is an air-monitoring technology that will measure oxygen, carbon dioxide, water vapor, temperature, and pressure within Orion during Artemis missions to the moon. The system is accurate enough to detect unsafe levels of these substances in cabin air composition. Dynetics delivered the first version of a LAMS unit to NASA for use in the Artemis II Orion spacecraft, the first Artemis mission that will carry humans.
