Commercial Crew Program (CCP) Logo

The U.S. Government, through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is investing in the development of a U.S. commercial crew space transportation capability with the goal of achieving safe, reliable, and cost effective access to and return from low-Earth orbit (LEO) and the International Space Station (ISS). The objective is to foster the development of a certified end-to-end Crew Transportation System (CTS) for use in LEO.

Through this development and certification process, NASA will help lay the foundation for future commercial transportation capabilities, upon which the Commercial Partners can market transportation services to the U.S. Government and other customers. Once a transportation capability is certified for NASA use and services are available, NASA could purchase transportation services to meet its ISS crew rotation and emergency return obligations.

The Commercial Crew Program Office is hosted by Kennedy Space Center and is supported by offices at Johnson Space Center.

Though this logo clearly drew inspiration from the Astronaut Pin, they are separate co-existing entities.

A better choice of terms; I like the nod to the past.

It will be released officially as a pin in the not too distant future.
The CCP logo is derived from the NASA flight crew symbol as the foundation for the program. The red, white and blue swoosh illustrates an American-led capability. The star depicts a future vehicle emerging from the overlapping double C's representing the Commercial Crew Program.

A recent NASA blog entry described the Commercial Crew Logo:
We always get asked what our Commercial Crew logo means, so here's a little bit of detail about the stylized swoosh and star that means so much to us here. The central design was inspired by the astronaut symbol of three lines converging at a point topped by a star and unified by a circle representing the goal of putting an astronaut into orbit, shown on the right.

For Commercial Crew, we brought the three lines together but gave them different colors – red, white and blue for America – and leaned the whole arrangement to the right to represent moving into the bright future of a stylized spacecraft represented by the star. The three lines also represent NASA working together with the American aerospace industry to accomplish the common goal of safely and cost-effectively launching astronauts into Earth orbit. We also retained a semi-circle representing orbital spaceflights, but we made it into two concentric partial circles that produce a pair of C's for Commercial Crew.

It takes teamwork on a lot of levels to meet substantial goals and the logo was the result of a lot of hard work by Commercial Crew engineer Jon Cowart along with Carol Scott and Mike Sterling who took the time to get the feel just right. They created imagery we could all take pride in and something that would reflect America's space-faring accomplishments and ambitions.

The astronauts assigned today (Aug. 3) to fly aboard the first commercial crew test flights and missions wore a Commercial Crew Program patch on their flight suits:

Unknown; it was first and only seen as pictured, sewn to the astronauts' flight suits.
