UAB’s Engineering Innovation and Technology Development (EITD) research group has been awarded a NASA contract worth up to $48.3 million for the group’s continued work toward building and maintain cold-stowage units for the International Space Station.

The new contract’s base period began on Jan. 1, 2021, and runs through Sept. 30, 2022, followed by two additional one-year options and one additional 14-month option that may be exercised at NASA’s discretion.

“The credit for the continued funding from NASA goes to all of the employees who work at EITD,” said Lee Moradi, professor at the UAB School of Engineering. “Their hard work, diligence, and attention to quality products and customer satisfaction manifest in the award of these contracts.”
