A subsidiary of Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), Sierra Space builds and delivers the future of space transportation, destinations and infrastructure, offering “space-as-a-service” in support of the new space economy. Leveraging breakthrough technologies including the Dream Chaser® spaceplane, also known as America’s Spaceplane®, and expandable LIFE™ habitat, Sierra Space offers turnkey solutions that are modular, reusable and scalable.
With 30+ years of proven spaceflight heritage, Sierra Space has provided more than 4,000 space systems, subsystems and components to customers worldwide, and participated in more than 500 missions to space, including to Mars. The company has technology in production and in development to enable space habitats for short- and long-duration space travel, a fleet of Dream Chaser spaceplanes, and the first free-flying commercial space station.
The Dream Chaser spaceplane, the world’s only runway-landing spaceplane available for civil and commercial use, is a multi-mission space utility vehicle designed to transport crew and cargo to low-Earth orbit (LEO) destinations such as the International Space Station. Dream Chaser was selected by NASA in 2016 to provide cargo delivery, return and disposal service for the space station under the Commercial Resupply Service 2 (CRS-2) contract. Dream Chaser will provide a minimum of seven cargo missions to and from the space station, carrying critical supplies like food, water, and science experiments, returning to Earth with a smooth runway landing. Dream Chaser Tenacity™ will be the first orbital vehicle in the Dream Chaser spaceplane fleet; its missions to the space station begin in 2022.
With technologies that make space more affordable and accessible, Sierra Space is creating an ecosystem for a prosperous and secure space economy that benefits all humanity. Sierra Space originated within Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), the global aerospace and defense company led and owned by Eren and Fatih Ozmen.
We bring life to space and space to life.
