Astra also completes second full program delivery
Astra announced today it is celebrating cumulative committed orders for more than 200 engines and two full programs of Astra Spacecraft Engines™ delivered.
“I’m thrilled that Astra has achieved both milestones: over 200 engines ordered and delivery of two full programs,” said Chris Kemp, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Astra, “Thank you to our customers for their confidence in our team and products, and congratulations to the team for the tremendous amount of work put in to achieve this milestone.”
Astra is preparing for a move-in this quarter into our new 60,000 square-foot production facility in Sunnyvale, California, where the team is expected to ramp production early next year to meet planned customer deliveries.
“We have more than doubled our backlog since June 30th of this year in Astra Spacecraft Engines™ where we continue to see sustained demand,” said Margo de Naray, VP of Mission Management and Customer Operations, “Reliable, on-time deliveries and exceptional customer focus are key to this positive momentum.”
Number of cumulative committed orders is measured from July 1, 2021, when Astra acquired Apollo Fusion, Inc. by merger, and includes 14 units in Apollo Fusion’s backlog on July 1, 2021.
