The purpose of the event is to provide details about the Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) Dream Chaser project and establish a forum for discussions between SNC and Canadian companies and academia involved in space-related research and development activities. The objective is to create synergies and partnership opportunities with SNC, allowing Canadian firms and researchers to contribute their unique expertise to space exploration.

Participating firms and researchers will have the opportunity to learn about the technical aspects of the Dream Chaser project, meet with the SNC engineering team and discuss mutually beneficial capabilities.

Participation in the event is free. However, please note that space is limited and prompt registration is recommended.

The event will take place in the CSA's Conference Centre which can accommodate 13 exhibition booths (standard size of 6 by 6 feet). The exhibition space will be available on a first come first served basis, also free of charge.

Quick facts

The Dream Chaser® spacecraft is a reusable, multi-mission space utility vehicle. It is capable of providing transportation services to and from low-Earth orbit, where the International Space Station (ISS) resides, and is the only commercial, lifting-body vehicle capable of a runway landing.

In January 2016, NASA awarded a cargo contract to SNC under its Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) program for the ISS. SNC and NASA have since executed a long term public private partnership contract extending cooperation until at least 2024 and providing for the acquisition of a minimum of six Dream Chaser missions by NASA.
