Honeywell awarded contract to support production of NASA's Orion spacecraft

Honeywell has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin to support production of NASA's Orion spacecraft fleet for the upcoming Artemis missions, which will send humans back to the moon for the first time since 1972. The contract to supply key components of the Orion crew module and service module will be managed and performed out of Honeywell's facility in Clearwater, Fla. Some work will also be conducted at the company's facilities in Glendale, Ariz. and Puerto Rico.

Honeywell will provide 14 products for Artemis missions III through V, including both hardware and software, to support NASA's lunar missions. NASA awarded Lockheed Martin a long-term multi-billion-dollar production contract for the Orion spacecraft, aimed to meet the space agency's anticipated needs into the 2030s.

Working in collaboration with the Orion team over the next decade, Honeywell will support Lockheed Martin and its partners through the development and production of essential guidance and navigation systems, command data handling, and display and control products.
