Commercial Crew Development (CCDev) Round One
upcoming CCDev Round 2
Washington, D.C., Monday, November 8, 2010 – Showcasing the potential of commercial crew transportation and commercial fixed-price agreements, five company teams selected by NASA in February 2010 under the $50 million Commercial Crew Development Round One program have built significant working hardware in just nine months, new images and data show.
“The launch vehicles for Commercial Crew already exist and are flying today, and the capsules and spacecraft that will fly atop these launch vehicles are making significant hardware progress – rocket engines are being fired, landing systems are being tested, heat shields are being built, designs are being refined,” said Bretton Alexander, President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. “The commercial spaceflight industry is poised to meet NASA’s mission requirements for crew transportation, creating thousands of jobs along the way.”
Including Sierra Nevada Space Systems, five teams participating in Commercial Crew Development Round One have show significant progress in the program:
- Sierra Nevada Corporation
- Paragon Space Development Corporation
