Sidus Space successfully integrates NASA Stennis ASTRA Engineering Unit ahead of upcoming launch

Sidus Space announced that it has completed the integration and testing of the NASA ASTRA (Autonomous Satellite Technology for Resilient Applications) Engineering Unit into the Company’s LizzieSat™ FlatSat located at the Sidus Integration Facility in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The Sidus team successfully completed extensive integration testing and communications with the NASA ASTRA team including multiple tests to verify functionality with the ASTRA Engineering Unit and the ability to effectively load Flight Software into the Engineering Unit from NASA Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. In addition, the Sidus team worked with the ASTRA team to load multiple ASTRA Flight Software loads into the Flight Module (FM) that is flying on LizzieSat-1.

"This milestone underscores our collaboration with NASA Stennis, highlighting their expertise in software and autonomous systems," said Carol Craig, CEO of Sidus Space. "We're eager to showcase NASA Stennis's pioneering solutions on their maiden space flight, reaffirming our dedication to advancing space exploration through technology."
