Boeing CCtCap Milestone Status
Milestones: 23
Milestones Completed: 2
Milestones Remaining: 21

A couple of notes on the table below:

  • In January, Boeing said it was planning an automated test flight of the CST-100 spacecraft to the International Space Station in April 2017 followed by a flight with crew in July of that year. These flights do not seem to be listed as specific milestones in the contract document.
  • The designation of milestones 3 and 4 as Pending does not necessarily indicate they are incomplete at this time. It’s possible they have been completed but not yet announced.
  • Boeing stated in January that the pad abort test would be completed in February 2017. The schedule calls for the test to be completed by December 2016.

  • windbourne

    Quite the difference from spacex.

  • duheagle

    Yeah. By my count, 20 of the 23 “milestones” are “reviews” or
    “reports.”

  • TimAndrews868

    Yes, and it seems odd that SpaceX has an in-flight abort test, but Boeing does not. Unless I am mistaken this will be the first US manned capsule to not have an in-flight abort test or equivalent (Gemini’s being performed horizontally on a rocket sled) prior to carrying astronauts.
