Dynetics’ Human Landing System will be designed to deliver two astronauts from lunar orbit to the lunar surface and back, including surface habitation for about a week. As part of the Dynetics team, Maxar will deliver a broad range of services and hardware solutions that will enable power, control, communications, robotic manipulation and thermal optimization for the Human Landing System. Maxar will also provide engineering and mission operations support.

Maxar’s role on Dynetics’ Human Landing System team expands the company’s significant contributions to NASA’s Artemis program. Maxar is developing the Power and Propulsion Element for the lunar Gateway that will enable a sustainable human deep-space presence in collaboration with international partners. And the company is building a robotic arm called SAMPLR for Masten Space Systems’ XL-1 unmanned lunar lander that will deliver nine technology demonstration experiments to the lunar south pole in 2022.

“Maxar is tremendously proud to contribute to these critical pieces of NASA’s Artemis program,” said Megan Fitzgerald, Maxar’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of Space Infrastructure. “By partnering with U.S. industry and leveraging innovative, flight-proven commercial technologies, NASA is accelerating this new era of American leadership in space.”

"Dynetics is excited to lead this expert team of subcontractors that will return Americans to the lunar surface," said Kim Doering, Vice President of Space Systems at Dynetics. "This team has a proven history of technical excellence, and their contributions will greatly benefit the future of space exploration."
