We would like to congratulate the teams of NASA, Lockheed Martin and Honeywell on the successful NASA Orion test flight! Orion has successfully lifted off aboard a Delta IV Heavy rocket to perform its first flight test in space. The spacecraft is designed to carry astronauts on exploration missions into deep space.

We are proud to be involved in a partnership with NASA since 2008, supporting the design of the NASA Orion Onboard Data Network (ODN) and advanced integrated system architectures for human-rated space flight based on our TTEthernet technology and products. Our collaboration with NASA and industry participants contributed to an open Ethernet-based standard suitable for the deployment in upcoming NASA programs and space systems, thus playing an important part in the Orion project.

Learn more about this exciting event in our press release and read up on TTEthernet on our technology page.
