Successful Completion of System Requirements & Design Review Demonstrates Progress Toward Q4 Launch of Innovative Precision Positioning, Navigation and Timing Payload

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla., February 20, 2024 – Sidus Space (NASDAQ: SIDU) (the “Company” or “Sidus”), a multi-faceted Space and Data-as-a-Service company, today announced that it has successfully completed its Systems Requirements Review (SRR) and System Design Review (SDR) for an innovative customer solution being integrated into its LS-3 satellite. The SRR and SDR are important program milestones marking the baselining of the requirements for the mission and design of the navigation payload into Sidus’ commercially developed, owned, and operated small satellite.

The SRR reviewed team specifications to ensure they reflect the current knowledge of the mission and market requirements to serve as a stable baseline to proceed with development. The Sidus team is maturing the design of its customer’s payload for an expected integration for launch later this year. Sidus was awarded the contract in the fourth Quarter of 2023.

The joint Sidus/Customer combined SRR and SDR reviews evaluated technical design readiness, joint mission pre-launch tasks to certify LS-3 for launch, and the mission ops tasks performed in space to achieve mission success.  All parties agreed the LS-3 integrated architecture safely meets approved mission success criteria on schedule and within budget.

“At Sidus Space, we are building a Space Platform with a PurposeTM to benefit life on Earth, and enabling a catalyst for disruptive technological breakthroughs and innovations that will shape the future,” said Carol Craig, CEO of Sidus Space.
