Boeing is planning a September 2019 launch of an empty capsule, with a crewed launch targeted by the end of 2019.  This will be first mission launching Astronauts to the International Space Station from US soil since the end of the Space Shuttle program in 2011

The crew capsule structure (forward and aft bulkhead domes) are manufactured by Spincraft’s North Billerica MA facility.  The capsule will launch on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas IV rocket.  Spincraft supplies domes to several ULA Space programs; each Atlas IV uses 4 fuel tank domes also manufactured in the MA plant.
