Sidus Space will continue producing hardware that will support Parsons Tranche 1 launch
Sidus Space, Inc., a Space-as-a-Service company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing combined with commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection, is proud to announce that it will continue producing hardware to support Parsons Corporation’s Tranche 1 (T1) launch. As part of this arrangement, Sidus Space will fabricate flight cables for Parsons evolved secondary payload adapter (ESPA) ring on T1.
The ESPA ring successfully launched on Landsat 9, a NASA satellite constructed to monitor the Earth’s land surface, on Sept. 27, 2021. As a subcontractor, Sidus Space was responsible for cable manufacturing for the ESPA ring.
“We are excited to build on our partnership with Parsons and continue to derive business from our high-quality manufacturing capabilities as one of the key components in our end-to-end full-stack solutions for the space industry,” said Sidus Space CEO and Founder, Carol Craig. “As we look ahead at new projects on the horizon, we are proud of our continued partnerships with key customers like Parsons.”
EELV Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA) is an adapter used for launching secondary payloads on orbital launch vehicles. T1 Tracking Layer provides the initial missile warning/missile tracking warfighting capability of the National Defense Space Architecture (NDSA).
