The U.S. Air Force's Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC) has awarded a contract worth $605,000 to W & O Construction Company, Inc., from Livingston, Tenn.

The contract will provide labor, material and equipment to perform construction work for the complete installation of a new approximately 2,500 square foot, one-story addition to building 1507, the Secondary Pumping Station.

AEDC is the world's most diverse complex of aerospace test facilities. Since it opened in 1951, its engineers, technicians, craftsmen and support personnel have been involved in the development of nearly all U.S. military and NASA high-performance jets, missiles and space systems.

The center's propulsion test cells, aerodynamic and propulsion wind tunnels, space chambers and ballistic missile ranges can simulate virtually every aspect of flight from ground level to deep space. Ground testing reduces risks and saves lives, equipment and money in operational testing. For more information on AEDC, visit the Web site at
