The International Space Station is a complex machine that requires constant maintenance. Supplies and cargo are frequently sent to the station using unmanned space vehicles. These unmanned missions have been launched from Russia, Europe, Japan, and the United States. Recently, a number of private companies have been sending unmanned spacecraft to resupply the ISS. These companies include SpaceX and Orbital ATK. SpaceX developed the Dragon spacecraft for delivering cargo to the ISS. The Dragon is launched aboard their Falcon 9 rocket system. Orbital ATK developed the Cygnus spacecraft for resupply missions. it is launched aboard their Antares rocket system. It can also be launched aboard the Atlas V, which was developed by the United Launch Alliance, a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing. Each unmanned supply mission gets a mission patch designed by NASA. Missions launched by private companies also get a mission insignia designed by the parent company. This page features only those mission patches designed by NASA.
