Strengthening its position as an end-to-end full stack solutions provider for the $1 trillion space economy, while accelerating the implementation of its Space-as-a-Service strategy throughout the year, Sidus continued to expand products and services to customers globally.

The Company's many achievements lay the groundwork for a transformational 2023. Among its accomplishments were:
Expanding Mission-Critical Hardware Manufacturing Business including being selected as a subcontractor to Collins Aerospace in its award of part of the $3.5 billion Exploration Extravehicular Activity (xEVAS) contract, expanding our relationship with Parsons and Teledyne Marine, and more.
Our manufacturing segment generated $4.27 million in new purchase orders during 2022. Sidus began its business in the manufacturing segment and, today, it remains an important revenue stream that defines our Space-as-a-Service offering, rounding out our vertically integrated capabilities.
New Contracts, Partnerships, and MOUs Propel Space-as-a-Service Offerings including integration of technologies and payloads onto LizzieSat™.
Preparation for Pivotal LizzieSat-1 Launch including executing on agreements for key systems launch agreements and in-orbit technologies in pursuit of developing a consistent launch cadence moving forward that enables us to meet the robust demand for our services.
Accelerating International Expansion including announcing plans to open a new office in the Netherlands and partnerships with GTM Advanced Structures and Dawn Aerospace, along with sharing capabilities and hosting international delegations to highlight our emerging capabilities.
