SNC Dream Chaser Testing Begins at NASA's Dryden, Langley

Sierra Nevada Corporation's (SNC) Space Systems Dream Chaser flight vehicle arrived at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif., Wednesday to begin tests of its flight and runway landing systems.

The tests are part of pre-negotiated, paid-for-performance milestones with NASA's Commercial Crew Program (CCP), which is facilitating U.S.-led companies' development of spacecraft and rockets that can launch from American soil. The overall goal of CCP is to achieve safe, reliable and cost-effective U.S. human access to and from the International Space Station and low-Earth orbit.

NASA Dryden Welcomes SNC's Dream Chaser for Testing

Sierra Nevada Corp. (SNC) Space Systems' Dream Chaser test flight craft, also known as an engineering test article, arrived at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif., May 15 to begin tests of its flight and runway landing systems.

With its wings and tail structure removed and shrouded in plastic wrap, the test article was transported from the company's facility in Louisville, Colo., atop a flatbed truck and trailer. The five-state journey took about five days to complete.
