SpaceX Awarded $1.4B NASA Contract Modification for 5 Additional ISS Crewed Missions

SpaceX has secured a potential eight-year, $1.4 billion contract modification to perform five more missions for NASA to transport crews to the International Space Station.

The modification to the Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contract brings the total contact value with SpaceX to approximately $4.93 billion and covers ground, launch, in-orbit, lifeboat capability and cargo transportation for each mission and return and recovery operations, NASA said Friday.

The performance period will run through 2030 under the sole-source CCtCap modification, which brings SpaceX’s total manned ISS missions to 14 and does not prevent the agency from issuing future modifications for more manned flight services.

NASA awarded the contract modification after releasing a notice of intent to buy additional crewed flights to the orbiting laboratory in June.

SpaceX received NASA certification for crewed flights to the ISS in November 2020.
