Hamilton Sundstrand Awarded Millions in NASA Work

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) _ NASA says it has awarded a contract
of up to $729 million to Hamilton Sundstrand for engineering,
safety and other tasks for its space suit used on the space shuttle
and International Space Station.
Hamilton Sundstrand, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.,
and its subcontractors also will perform engineering management for
hardware systems used in spacewalks.
NASA announced two one-year options for support work for space
shuttle spacewalks through 2012, and five one-year options for
space station work from 2015 to 2020.
The Windsor Locks-based aerospace parts manufacturer has been
working on space suits for NASA since the 1960s. Dan Coulom, a
spokesman for the company, says these contracts will allow that
work to continue for another decade.
