CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Sidus Space (NASDAQ: SIDU) (the “Company” or “Sidus”), a multi-faceted Space and Data-as-a-Service company, today announced it has been awarded an Indefinite-Delivery/ Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide services to a US owned company in support of their commercial lunar program.

Sidus will be supporting a lunar transportation, infrastructure and exploration services company with Program Management, Flight Software, Command & Data Handling (C&DH), Electrical and Thermal support services. A commercial lunar platform includes everything from payload integration and operations, to launching from Earth and landing on the surface of the Moon.
