Sidus Space awarded additional Bechtel cable assembly contract for Mobile Launcher 2

Sidus Space announced that it has been selected by Bechtel to manufacture additional cables in support of the NASA Mobile Launcher 2 contract for the Artemis missions. This follows Sidus’ prior contract with Bechtel to fabricate custom cables and populate unique electronics cabinets supporting the launch control subsystem and ground special power subsystems.


Mobile Launcher 2 is the ground platform structure that will launch Space Launch System (SLS) rockets Block 1B and Block 2 configurations to the Moon, allowing the agency to send astronauts and heavy cargo to the lunar surface as part of NASA’s Artemis mission. The mobile launcher is the primary interface between the ground launch control system, the SLS rocket, and Orion spacecraft flight hardware.


"We are honored to extend our collaboration with Bechtel on NASA’s Mobile Launcher 2 project for the Artemis missions," said Rich Kube, Chief Production Officer at Sidus Space. “This additional cable assembly contract reinforces Sidus Space's steadfast dedication to excellence in aerospace technology. Our ongoing contribution of critical components to the launch of the SLS rockets Block 1B and Block 2 configurations reflects our unwavering commitment to supporting NASA's Artemis mission in its goal to explore and establish a presence on the lunar surface."
