Orbital's Proposed Space Vehicle For NASA's Commercial Crew Development-2 Program Is Depicted In Rendezvous And Berthing Operations With The International Space Station (Photo: Business Wire)

Orbital is already under contract with NASA to provide unmanned cargo logistics services to the ISS under the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) program using a commercial system consisting of the company’s Taurus ® II medium-class space launch vehicle, its Cygnus™ cargo logistics spacecraft and a ground-based command and control systems. Orbital is slated to carry out a demonstration flight of the combined system in 2011, followed by operational cargo delivery services beginning in early 2012.
