The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Engineering and Innovative Technology Development group has achieved a significant milestone by securing a pivotal role in the International Space Station program, offering a spectrum of research, engineering, and mission integration services.

Joining forces with eleven other distinguished organizations, UAB has landed a coveted multiple-award contract, the Research, Engineering, and Mission Integration Services-2 (REMIS-2), with maximum potential value of an impressive $478 million. This contract not only provides UAB with a platform to contribute directly to the International Space Station program but also presents an opportunity to extend our expertise and services to a broader spectrum of clients that require a thermally controlled environment for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and beyond.

The seven-year duration of the REMIS-2 contract, spanning from January 2024 to September 30, 2030, with an option for extension until 2032, emphasizes the long-term commitment and opportunity it presents for UAB. Furthermore, the ability for other NASA organizations or federal Government agencies to utilize the contract through mutual agreement with the NASA ISS Program extends the reach and impact of UAB’s expertise and services, solidifying its position as a leader in engineering and innovative technology development.
