[i]Two companies that competed against each other in a contested bid to design the next-generation space suit for NASA will now work together in a joint enterprise.
Dan Coulom, a spokesman for Hamilton Sundstrand, which is a partner of ILC Dover in the project, said Tuesday the venture will bid for the $745 million contract with Oceaneering International Inc.
...Coulom said the Windsor Locks, Conn.-based Hamilton Sundstrand decided to work with Oceaneering following "a lot of debate inside the company."
"We're still very much in the space suit industry," he said.
NASA spokesman Grey Hautaluoma said the space agency expects to award the contract in 2009 and is waiting for details from Hamilton Sundstrand and Oceaneering about how the two companies plan to work together on the project.
Coulom said Hamilton Sundstrand and Oceaneering have not yet worked out the details.[/i]
