Commercial space offers significant benefits to national security, global economies, and society at large. However, spaceflight is a risk-prone and capital-intensive endeavor. As safety is necessary across all space activities, operational best practices will benefit the entire space enterprise.
The Space Safety Institute (SSI) at The Aerospace Corporation (Aerospace) delivers independent technical support and assessments to enhance safety for government, commercial, and international space customers through cross-cutting and holistic initiatives. SSI develops methodologies and provides knowledge to the space community through services, published research, and educational activities including trainings and workshops, for all aspects of safe space operations.
