December 12 – Odyssey Space Research was awarded the Rendezvous, Proximity Operations and Capture V (RPOC V) contract! The contract provides engineering services supporting America’s Human Spaceflight programs, such as the International Space Station, Commercial Cargo and Commercial Crew vehicles, and the Orion Program (with Artemis I having splashed down on December 11th!). 

The RPOC V contract is a five-year contract focused on providing integrated GN&C assessments related to oversight of Commercial Cargo and Crew vehicles in proximity to the International Space Station (ISS). RPOC V also includes GN&C, trajectory, and flight software integration support to the Orion Program. Another focus of the contract is Technology Development to support any of JSC’s Engineering Aerosciences and Flight Mechanics Division (AFMD) projects. 

“We are very excited for this opportunity and are privileged to be able to continue supporting NASA’s Human Spaceflight programs with the JSC Engineering Aerosciences and Flight Mechanics Division,” said Jana Rebmann, President of Odyssey Space Research and RPOC V Program Manager. “Our RPOC team is a dedicated and talented group, and this win is testimony to their demonstrated commitment and performance”.
