This is the report of Stephen H. Nelson, Director of Material at the Space Division of North American Rockwell. The Cali- fornia company is one of four, under consideration by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as a prime contractor for the Shuttle program. Nelson, in contact with both of Alabama's U. S. Senators, the Agency of Agriculture and its competitive proposal sub- mitted to NASA in mid-May. Nelson also mentioned that actual subcontractor awards will be dependent uponthe com- petitive selection of the major contractor and subsequent ap- proval by NASA. Nelson estimates that in addition to these major sub- contracts, a total of approxi- mately $500 million will be sub- contracted throughout the nation for less complex systems, on a competitive bid basis. About the Shuttle, Nelson points out that the Orbiter is actually a space "carrier" Shuttle Orbiter can make up to five hundred round trips. Such reusability reduces the cost of space flight by a factor of 10." The Space Shuttle program was announced by President Nixon last January as a major objective for America's space activity in the 1970-80 time period. approved development of the Shuttle program in passage of the Fiscal Year 1973 NASA authorization bill.
