Sierra Space is not only the creator of the Dream Chaser® spacecraft, but also the designer and manufacturer of rocket engines and components, systems that sustain life in deep space, as well as systems and satellites that improve life here on Earth. The work of our Sierra Space team not only supports the U.S. government (including NASA), but also commercial customers and international organizations.
More than 4,000 of our systems, subsystems and components have been part of 450+ successful space missions, reaching seven planets, Pluto and the sun.
The Dream Chaser spaceplane will provide cargo services to the International Space Station starting in 2022 under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 contract.
We envision a future where humanity lives and works in space, on moons, and on distant planets. People are married, children are born, families are raised, businesses are built and new civilizations thrive.
Our vision isn’t restricted to the few, nor solely to governments, instead we see a future where all people can choose to live, work, explore, and vacation beyond our planet.
We are courageous pioneers, innovators and doers.
