Commercial Space Transportation Programs

Commercial Space Transportation is working to meet the needs now and into the future by working with those involved in every aspect of the commercial space industry, including the next generation of rocket engineers and scientists. We join forces with executives from the commercial space transportation industry, representatives from the satellite industry, both manufacturers and users and also state and local government officials both nationally and internationally. We are going one step further by also working within the FAA to efficiently integrate Commercial Space operations into the National Airspace System (NAS) to minimize impact on air travel and maximize safety.
