As the government’s preeminent space innovation partner, The Aerospace Corporation brings nearly 60 years of expertise to the challenge of advancing the nation’s missions in space while also supporting the nation’s deterrence mission. Aerospace established a presence in New Mexico in the 1980s, initially supporting the Space Technology Center (now the Air Force Research Laboratory) with a staff of 20 engineers. Today, Aerospace’s presence in New Mexico has generated an economic impact of $21 million and grown to nearly 100 employees—including scientists and engineers who are working to develop innovative space technologies, support our nuclear deterrence posture, and assure the nation’s nuclear stockpile.
