SNC's Dream ChaserĀ® Cargo System: A Transportation System to Deliver Cargo to the ISS for NASA

Sierra Nevada Corporation's (SNC) Dream ChaserĀ® Cargo System is a mission variant of the Dream Chaser Space System that exceeds all NASA cargo transportation requirements to the International Space Station. The uncrewed Dream Chaser launches inside a standard 5m fairing, transporting pressurized and unpressurized cargo concurrently.

This video demonstrates the CRS2 mission from launch on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, delivery of cargo to the ISS, cargo module disposal, low-g, gentle runway landing return of cargo and sensitive science payloads with immediate access, all attributes that are unique to the reusable, lifting-body Dream Chaser spacecraft.
