The xEVAS contract has a potential value of $3.5bn through 2034 with a 10-year base contract plus two option years.
Space-as-a-Service company Sidus Space has announced that it is part of the Collins Aerospace team that was awarded NASA’s Exploration Extravehicular Activity (xEVAS) services contract.
Sidus Space will provide a range of multi-disciplinary engineering services to the team.
The Exploration Extravehicular Activity Services, or xEVAS Programme is expected to include the design, development, production, hardware processing, and sustainment of an integrated Extravehicular Activity (EVA) capability that includes a new Spacesuit and ancillary hardware, such as Vehicle Interface Equipment and EVA tools. This EVA capability is to be provided as a service for the NASA International Space Station (ISS), Artemis Programme (Gateway and Human Landing System), and Commercial Space missions.
The xEVAS contract has a potential value of $3.5bn through 2034 with a 10-year base contract plus two option years. NASA awarded the contract to Collins Aerospace and Axiom Space.
Carol Craig, CEO of Sidus Space, said: “We are proud to be part of the Collins xEVA team in the development and manufacturing of the next-generation space suits to support ISS and Artemis, allowing humans to walk and explore the moon. Over the last 10 years, Sidus has been manufacturing space hardware and participating in every major space project. We are looking forward to playing a meaningful role in this exciting opportunity, continuing our legacy of creating new revenue streams through strong partnerships.”
