  • 2. 2 Program Status Update Provide update on Commercial Crew Program Progress Partnership Accomplishments and Plans 2012-2013 • Blue Origin • The Boeing Company • Sierra Nevada Corp. (SNC) Space Systems • Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) Initiation of the CCP Certification Products Contracts Planning for the final development and certification effort
  • 3. National Aeronautics and Space Administration Commercial Crew Program A Multifaceted Partnership Jan. 9, 2013 Philip McAlister NASA Headquarters
  • 4. Overview • The goal of the Commercial Crew Program is to facilitate the development of a U.S. commercial crew space transportation capability with the goal of achieving safe, reliable and cost-effective access to and from low-Earth orbit and the International Space Station. 4 The Gherkin, London. Credit: Ed Trayes Photo Archive at Temple University; www.edtrayes.com • In order to accomplish this goal, NASA has created a multifaceted partnership between the government and industry, featuring: 1. Financial Investments 2. Milestones and Quarterly Reviews 3. NASA Partner Integration Teams 4. Technical Interchange Meetings 5. Reimbursable Space Act Agreements 6. Data Sharing 7. Requirements Application
  • 5. Financial Investments To Date • Commercial Crew Development Round 1 (CCDev1) – $50M total – Partners (5): Blue Origin, Boeing, Paragon, SNC, ULA – Scope: Crew Transportation System Technologies and Concepts • Commercial Crew Development Round 2 (CCDev2) – $315M total – Partners (4): Blue Origin, Boeing, SNC, SpaceX – Scope: Elements of a Crew Transportation System • Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) – $1.1B total – Partners (3): Boeing, SNC, SpaceX – Scope: Integrated Crew Transportation Systems • Certification Products Contract (CPC) – $29.6M total – Partners (3): Boeing, SNC, SpaceX – Scope: Early Certification Products 5
  • 6. Milestones and Quarterly Reviews • Milestones are the formal items associated with the Space Act Agreements that allow NASA to assess partner progress and accomplishment of the milestone entrance and exit criteria. • Payments are made only after partner demonstrates that the milestone criteria have been successfully met. 6 • Quarterly Reviews cover technical progress made; milestone expectations for upcoming quarter; current risk assessment; any life cycle cost changes; plans forward; and any difficulties encountered and the corrective actions necessary to recover. CCP Milestone and Quarterly Review Schedule
  • 7. NASA Partner Integration Teams • NASA’s Partner Integration Teams consist of technical experts in a variety of subject matters from across the agency. • These technical experts: – Assist in milestone evaluation – Provide industry partners with human spaceflight technical expertise and experience – Provide NASA with a working-level understanding of industry’s designs 7 Partner Manager Deputy PM (x2) Technical Integrators Engineering* Health and Medical Safety and Mission Assurance Mission Operations Ground Systems Launch Services Crew Office Office of Primary Responsibility Spacecraft Launch Vehicle Mission Planning and Integration Launch and Recovery Systems Systems Engineering and Requirements ISS Engineering* Fluids Propulsion Flight Mechanics Avionics and Electrical Flight Software Entry, Descent and Landing Test and Verification Structures Mechanical Systems
  • 8. Technical Interchange Meetings • Technical Interchange Meetings (TIMs) are informal forums where NASA and industry experts meet to discuss detailed topics in a collaborative fashion where a free exchange of ideas is encouraged. • TIMs allow quick identification and resolution of technical issues at an engineer-to-engineer level. 8 • NASA and its commercial crew industry partners have conducted dozens of TIMs. Example topics include: – Propulsion – Launch vehicle structures – Docking systems – Thermal protection systems
  • 9. Reimbursable Space Act Agreements (RSAAs) CCP Sponsored 9 • RSAAs permit partners to use underutilized NASA facilities, personnel or equipment. NASA’s costs are reimbursed by the partner. • NASA undertakes reimbursable SAAs when it has unique goods, services or facilities that can be made available to another party in a manner which does not interfere with NASA mission requirements.

  • 10. Data Sharing • Another way NASA transfers knowledge is through the distribution of current and historical technical products. • To date, NASA has received nearly 1,000 requests for NASA products from its commercial crew partners, including documents, drawings, test plans and test results. 10 • NASA’s partners can leverage these data products to accelerate their crew transportation system development efforts and to avoid “reinventing the wheel.” Breakdown of Partner Data Requests by Program
  • 11. Requirements Application • With the recently awarded Certification Products Contracts, NASA has a mechanism to engage industry in the application of key safety and performance requirements associated with the ISS crew transportation mission. 11 • The Certification Products Contracts will 1) reduce the uncertainty associated with interpretation of NASA’s certification requirements, 2) reduce the risk of accepting technical/safety risk later in development and 3) reduce the risk of potential schedule delays and/or cost increases. NASA and Industry Partner Roles in Certification NASA Grants Certification Partner asserts its system meets NASA’s safety and technical requirements NASA validates the Partner’s Assertion of Certification
