LOUISVILLE, CO (SNC PR) — Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is proud to announce that former NASA astronaut Lee Archambault has joined the Dream Chaser team as a chief systems engineer and test pilot. In his new position, Archambault will be responsible for planning and execution of multiple aspects of Dream Chaser’s flight test programs and the design of the crew interfaces in the Dream Chaser cockpit.
“As a crew member on two Space Shuttle missions to the International Space Station (ISS), I was honored to be part of a great NASA team that has made the United States the leader of manned spaceflight,” said Archambault. “Now, as a member of SNC’s Dream Chaser team, I hope to contribute to the design, development, and test of the next U.S. built and launched crewed spacecraft, providing transportation to the ISS for our astronauts. I believe the Dream Chaser will be the safest, most reliable, and preferred method of travel to and from low Earth orbit for years to come.”
