The Future of Space Is Built Here

With experience gained from supporting every major U.S. endeavor to escape Earth’s gravity, we’re designing and building the future of safe, assured space exploration and commercial access – even as we lead the digital transition of the satellite industry for both government and commercial customers around the globe.

We’re enabling critical research on the International Space Station (ISS) that benefits the future space economy, deep-space exploration and life on Earth; returning crew launch capabilities to U.S. soil with the CST-100 Starliner commercial spacecraft; ensuring successful delivery to Earth’s orbit with the United Launch Alliance (ULA) joint venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin; and building heavy-lift, human-rated propulsion to deep space with the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket that will launch missions on a path to the Gateway cislunar outpost, the moon’s surface and Mars. Boeing-built Tracking and Data Relay Satellites (TDRS) provide high-bandwidth communications between Earth-orbiting spacecraft and facilities on the ground.

We also design and build advanced space and communications systems for military, commercial and scientific uses, including advanced digital payload, all-electric propulsion and 3D manufacturing capabilities for spacecraft that can operate in the geosynchronous, medium-Earth-orbital or low-Earth-orbital planes. We’re using innovative manufacturing practices, and simplifying and reducing the complexity of Boeing satellites.

What's Possible

Artemis

NASA, the United States, and the space industry are building increased access to and commercialization of opportunities in low Earth orbit; a return to the moon’s surface by 2024 – this time to stay; and sustainable exploration of deep space, including the moon and Mars. We are committed to NASA’s Artemis program and to the National Space Council’s vision for continued American leadership and international partnerships in space.

Research underway on the International Space Station (ISS) that we built and sustain is enabling humans and technology to operate in space for months at a time. Commercial spacecraft such as our CST-100 Starliner will open a market for tourism and manufacturing in low Earth orbit, while increasing research conducted on the ISS. That will allow NASA and its partner agencies to focus on deep-space exploration missions.

You’ll need the most powerful rocket ever built to get people and massive payloads to the moon and Mars. NASA’s Space Launch System is the size of a 38-story building and will produce 8.8 million pounds of maximum thrust at launch. We’re providing its avionics, core stage and upper stages to support NASA’s Artemis moon missions and make the next generation of human spaceflight possible.

We’re designing a Gateway for cislunar space – the region between the Earth and the moon – to be a testbed and hub for robotic and crewed missions to the lunar surface and eventually to Mars. And we’re conducting studies on surface modules and other technologies for lunar exploration.
