Commercial Crew TransportationNASA’s Commercial Crew Transportation Capability (CCtCap) contracts bring the United States one step closer to launching crew.Commercial transportation to and from the International Space Station (ISS) will provide for additional research and discovery on theorbiting laboratory. The station is critical for NASA’s continued research for understanding and overcoming the challenges of long-durationspaceflight necessary for deep space exploration missions.Goal: Facilitate the development of U.S. commercial crew space transportation systems to provide safe, reliable, cost-effective accessto and from the station and low-Earth orbit from America.• Transport pressurized scientific research and cargo and increase the station crew, enabling twice the amount of scientific research tobe conducted.• By encouraging private companies to provide human transportation services to and from low-Earth orbit, NASA can expand its focuson building spacecraft and rockets for deep space exploration missions.Safety:• Crew safety is paramount.• Systems must meet NASA’s rigoroussafety standards for human spaceflight.• Robust NASA insight into safetyand performance.Multiple Contract Awards:• Competition results in most cost-effectiveand safe systems and providescritical redundancy.Contract Terms:• FAR-based firm, fixed-price contracts;both providers must meet the sameNASA requirements.• Components:– Certification: Five mandatorymilestones, including a crew flighttest to ISS with a NASA astronaut tovalidate system performance.– Post-Certification Missions (PCMs):Five mandatory milestones; guaranteedorder of two missions per award;maximum order of six missionsper award.– Interim Milestones: Each contractorproposed additional milestones todemonstrate meaningful progress inthe development and certification of itscrew transportation system.– Special Studies and Analyses
