ITEK TO BUILD ORBITER CAMERA SYSTEM

The NASA Johnson Space Center, Houston, has signed a contract with

Itek Optical Systems Division of Lexington, Massachusetts, for the Space

Shuttle

Orbiter

Camera

Payload

System.

The

cost-plus-incentive-fee

contract is valued at $4,890,000 and covers the first flight system and

an option for a second system.

Planned for space flight in Orbiter's 15 by 65-foot cargo bay on

pallets and test racks built by NASA or by the European Space Agency (ESA),

the Orbiter Camera Payload System is a flexible photographic array for

Earth imaging surveys, remote sensing experiments and as an adjunct to

non-imaging systems.

The second option covers a large format camera for the U.S.

Geological Survey, and if exercised, will increase the contract value

by $1.5 million.
