Project Experience

We are proud to support our customers on ground-breaking projects at the leading edge of space exploration. Our team strives to develop and deliver innovative, high-value solutions to all of our commercial and government partners.

Here’s just a sample of customer projects we help fly.

Sierra Space Dream Chaser


Dream Chaser


Flight Software

The Odyssey team has been selected to perform implementation and testing of the flight software for the Sierra Space Dream Chaser spaceplane. Dream Chaser will provide cargo transportation to and from the International Space Station as part of NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 program. The vehicle is being designed to evolve for the accommodation of crew and for missions to other Low Earth Orbit destinations.

Odyssey’s role includes implementation and testing of the flight software suite for the entire mission – from launch to landing – with our Sierra Space customer. The work will be performed to the exacting technical and safety specifications required by Sierra Space and NASA at Odyssey’s locations in Houston, TX and our new location in Boulder, CO.

Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV)




Guidance, Navigation & Control Flight Software
Avionics Integration & Test
Spaceflight Simulation & Analysis

Odyssey is part of the Lockheed Martin team supporting NASA’s Orion project. The Odyssey role includes development of vehicle guidance, navigation and control (GN&C), simulation and flight software development, and related analysis for the EM-1 demonstration mission and the EM-2 crew mission.

Odyssey also supports the Kedalion Lab located at the Johnson Space Center. Through Kedalion, Odyssey provides support to the Houston Orion Test Hardware (HOTH) lab for hardware and software in the loop simulations, the Integrated Test Lab (ITL) for hardware in the loop simulations with an Orion mockup, and Operation and Controls (O&C) to prepare the Orion flight vehicle for launch.

Northrop Grumman Cygnus ISS Resupply


ISS Commercial Resupply Services


Spaceflight Simulation & Analysis

Odyssey is part of the Northrop Grumman Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) team selected by NASA to conduct cargo delivery services to the ISS as part of the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract. Odyssey performs Independent Verification and Validation of safety critical Cygnus flight software focusing on trajectory and GN&C simulation and analysis.

ISS & Exploration Flight Operations


Mission Control Center


Human Spaceflight Operations

Odyssey is part of the SGT/IMOC II team supporting NASA’s Flight Operations Directorate at the Johnson Space Center. Odyssey Flight Controllers support “Plan, Train, Fly” operations for the ISS, Visiting Vehicles to ISS, and Orion. Odyssey personnel currently support the following flight control disciplines:

  • ADCO – Attitude Determination & Control Officer

  • VVO – Visiting Vehicle Officer

  • RNDZ – Rendezvous, Guidance, & Procedures Officer

  • Prop/Booster – Propulsion & Booster Systems

  • Pointing – Pointing Officer

  • FDO – Flight Dynamics Officer

ISS Rendezvous, Proximity Operations, and Capture


ISS Visiting Vehicles


Spaceflight Simulation & Analysis
Guidance, Navigation & Control

Odyssey is part of the NASA RPOC (Rendezvous, Proximity Operations, and Capture) team performing International Space Station (ISS) integration of free flying vehicles that operate in proximity to the ISS. Past and present vehicles supported include the European Space Agency ATV, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency HTV and HTV-X, the SpaceX Cargo and Crew Dragon, the Northrop Grumman Cygnus, the Sierra Nevada Corporation Dream Chaser, the Boeing CST-100 Starliner.
