      Triumph Group announced that its Integrated Systems business unit will provide the landing gear system for the Dream Chaser spacecraft, a reusable, lifting-body vehicle in support of NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 (CRS2) program that will resupply the International Space Station (ISS). Triumph signed the contract for work with Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), and includes the main and nose landing gear as well as integrated actuation solutions for the landing gear and gear door systems manufactured at Triumph’s Redmond, Washington site.

      Triumph Integrated Systems previously partnered with SNC to provide consulting services for the Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) program with NASA, also in support of the ISS. In addition, the company provides miniature motors to support robotic satellite demonstration missions.

      Owned and operated by SNC, Dream Chaser is capable of transportation services to and from Low Earth Orbit (LEO). All Dream Chaser CRS2 cargo missions are planned to land at Kennedy Space Center’s Shuttle Landing Facility in Florida.
