International Space Station Program

The International Space Station (ISS) is the largest, most complex international scientific and engineering space project in history and our largest endeavor into space to date. Completed in 2011, the ISS is larger than an American football field including the end zones. The ISS serves as a test bed for building and maintaining large structures in space, for conducting science and technology research leading to discoveries that will benefit us here on Earth, and as a test bed for developments in future human space exploration. Boeing is supporting a variety of capability enhancements that will enable use of the ISS to be extended to 2028. Those enhancements include a new communications system for visiting spacecraft, a new NASA docking system, lithium-ion batteries for the solar arrays, improved life support systems, enhanced Payload experiment capability, software and avionics upgrades. In addition, Boeing supports processing of the laboratory experiment racks to facilitate experiments in space as well as ground system to support payload development and testing prior to launch.
