Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (MPCV)
Odyssey is part of the Lockheed Martin team supporting NASA’s Orion project. The Odyssey role includes support of the vehicle guidance, navigation and control (GN&C), simulation and flight software development, and related analysis for the EFT-1 mission and the upcoming EM-1 demonstration mission.
Odyssey also supports the Kedalion Lab located at the Johnson Space Center. Through Kedalion, Odyssey provides support to the Houston Orion Test Hardware (HOTH) lab for hardware and software in the loop simulations, the Integrated Test Lab (ITL) for hardware in the loop simulations with an Orion mockup, and Operation and Controls (O&C) to prepare the Orion flight vehicle for launch.
