NASA and HP Enters Into $2.5 Billion Contract

Nasa recently signed a $2.5 Billion contract with Hewlett-Packard for a 10-year deal, which includes computer networks, hardware, software and more, according to a report by Bloomberg.

According to the report, HP will be taking over many services currently provided by Lockheed Martin.

2010 has been a very interesting year for HP, which has been marked by the ousted then-CEO Mark Hurd, who joined Oracle after leaving the company. The company is now involved in a number court cases related to the CEO ‘issues’ that came about this year. The company also reported great fourth-quarter revenue earnings, placing the company in a firm position in the market.

Now, the news of the new contract with Nasa may be putting the company on a firm track when entering 2011, which will help with finances and attracting attention away from the CEO ‘issues’.

Full details on the contract have not yet been made public, but we look forward to seeing what technology HP will bring to Nasa in the next 10 years.
