The C3PO will extend human presence in space by enabling an expanding and robust U.S. commercial space transportation industry.
C3PO is responsible for managing NASA's Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) projects.
Commercial Crew Development is a NASA investment that will aid in the development and demonstration of safe, reliable, and cost-effective space transportation capabilities.
The Commercial Spaceflight theme encompasses completion of commercial cargo capability milestones and will expand NASA's efforts to develop commercial crew capability to LEO and the ISS.
NASA’s Commercial Crew Program (CCP) is an innovative partnership to help the United States industry develop space transportation systems that can safely launch astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) and other low Earth orbit destinations.
A human outpost in space bringing nations together for the benefit of life on Earth and beyond.
