    SDC Brings NASA’s Mission to Mars Home to San Diego


    San Diego, CA, Feb 2017 - San Diego Composites, Inc. (SDC), supplier on NASA’s Orion Spacecraft – a critical piece of NASA’s journey to Mars – participated in the fifth annual suppliers’ conference in Washington, D.C.

    SDC fabricates hardware for the Orion spacecraft including critical hardware for the spacecraft’s Launch Abort System. NASA’s Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System rocket will take astronauts to the moon, Mars, and beyond—farther into deep space than ever before.

    NASA has the goal of sending humans to Mars in the 2030s. That journey is already well under way, with teams across the United States making steady progress toward Exploration Mission-1, the first integrated test flight of SLS and Orion.
