This is an unprecedented time for space. Technological advancement, lower-cost access to space, and massive private investment are all driving a wave of commercial space innovation. The U.S. government is eager to rapidly harness these next-generation commercial solutions to outpace evolving missions and threats, while improving the nation’s security and prosperity. Commercial capabilities will be critical to addressing challenges like space traffic management and space domain awareness, and are already playing a critical role supporting U.S. national security.

The Aerospace Corporation (Aerospace) is working with our government customers to achieve these goals by identifying, connecting, and aligning commercial solutions with current and emerging national needs. In this “super-connector” role, Aerospace is creating greater collaboration between public and private sectors, while driving speed into the acquisition process and accelerating the development, advancement, and integration of space-based capabilities.
