Sidus Space (formarly Craig Technologies Aerospace Solutions) was awarded a ten-year Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) hardware fabrication support contract from Lockheed Martin Space for its Commercial Civil Space programs including the Orion spacecraft.
Orion is NASA’s first spacecraft designed for long-duration, crewed deep space exploration. Orion will transport humans to interplanetary destinations beyond low-Earth orbit, including the Moon and eventually Mars, and return them safely back to Earth.
“This is a very exciting time for small businesses to be engaged with NASA’s mission to deep space,” said Carol Craig, founder and CEO. “We are pleased that our exceptional past performance with Lockheed Martin and our unique capabilities will be applied to these cutting-edge programs.”
Sidus Space, a subsidiary of Craig Technologies, are both a part of Lockheed Martin’s small business partners in the expansive United States supply chain network. There are approximately 4,500 civil servant and contractor jobs, in addition 2,200 subcontractor and supplier companies in 49 states.
