Commercial Crew Transportation
NASA’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 the
orbiting laboratory. The station is critical for NASA’s continued research for understanding and overcoming the challenges of long-duration
spaceflight necessary for deep space exploration missions.
Goal: Facilitate the development of U.S. commercial crew space transportation systems to provide safe, reliable, cost-effective access
to 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 to
be conducted.
• By encouraging private companies to provide human transportation services to and from low-Earth orbit, NASA can expand its focus
on building spacecraft and rockets for deep space exploration missions.
Safety:
• Crew safety is paramount.
• Systems must meet NASA’s rigorous
safety standards for human spaceflight.
• Robust NASA insight into safety
and performance.
Multiple Contract Awards:
• Competition results in most cost-effective
and safe systems and provides
critical redundancy.
Contract Terms:
• FAR-based firm, fixed-price contracts;
both providers must meet the same
NASA requirements.
• Components:
– Certification: Five mandatory
milestones, including a crew flight
test to ISS with a NASA astronaut to
validate system performance.
– Post-Certification Missions (PCMs):
Five mandatory milestones; guaranteed
order of two missions per award;
maximum order of six missions
per award.
– Interim Milestones: Each contractor
proposed additional milestones to
demonstrate meaningful progress in
the development and certification of its
crew transportation system.
– Special Studies and Analyses
