NASA Survives Budget Cuts by Being Critical to Defense Modernization Efforts 

Unlike other Federal agencies, NASA made it through sequestration essentially unscathed. In fact, a big data view of the NASA market indicates that spending is on track to rise in FY16 after increasing 7.9 percent in FY15.

Key Findings:

  • Applied Research & Exploratory Development, NASA’s largest PSC category, is driving annual spend
  • Top vendors for NASA’s key spending categories include Caltech, Russian Space Agency, SpaceX, Orbital ATK, Boeing and Lockheed Martin
  • Investment in manned systems that will bring astronauts to Mars will drive spending higher in FY19 after Orion’s last unmanned flight in FY18

 

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
