CCDev  

Boeing, a leading aerospace company, is developing a Commercial Crew Vehicle which can be launched on a variety of launch vehicles. As part of a Space Act Agreement with NASA, Boeing will receive up to $18 million as part of the CCDev award to research and develop the system concepts and advance key technologies that are applicable to a capsule-based commercial crew transport system to the International Space Station. Boeing will develop the overall system definition and perform demonstration testing on life support, avionics, landing systems and other critical subsystems, primarily at sites in Texas, California and Nevada. By maturing the design and development of commercial crew spaceflight concepts and associated enabling technologies and capabilities, the CCDev program allows Boeing to move toward full demonstration of commercial human spaceflight to low Earth orbit in the near term.
