300+ People Attend 2017 Aerospace Day At The Capitol

Posted: March 27, 2017

More than 300 people and about two dozen sponsors and exhibitors attended the 2017 Aerospace Day at the Capitol co-organized by the Colorado Space Business Roundtable. In attendance was Lt. Governor Donna Lynne. "Today's Aerospace Day at the Capitol provided a wonderful forum for our aerospace community to showcase the incredible innovation, talent, and technology developments that are driving the nation's major space programs and missions," said Lt. Governor Donna Lynne, "Coloradans were able to take a close up look at what makes Colorado a leading aerospace state, and why aerospace continues to serve as such a dynamic driver of our state's economy. Events such as Aerospace Day also provide our students with a unique opportunity to meet with those working in the space industry, which is great exposure to careers in STEM fields, and helps inspire our next-generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, and entrepreneurs."

Aerospace Day is a project of the Colorado Space Business Roundtable (CSBR), the Colorado Space Coalition (CSC), Citizens for Space Exploration (CSE), and the Aerospace States' Association (ASA).

Sponsors of the event were Advanced Mobile Propulsion Test, Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp., Boeing, Colorado Business Roundtable, Lockheed Martin, Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade, Red Canyon Engineering & Software, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Teledyne Brown Engineering, United Launch Alliance, and University of Colorado Boulder.

CU Boulder Team Entered Into 5 Year Agreement With NASA

Posted: April 17, 2017 

A CU Boulder team has entered into a five-year, $4.5-million cooperative agreement with NASA to become part of a virtual institute to pursue the construction of astronomical observatories on the moon. The research team, led by Professor Jack Burns of APS, is one of four new research groups named to join the existing nine that comprise NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI). The research group, which will be known as the Network for Exploration and Space Science (NESS), will implement partnerships to advance scientific discovery and human exploration in the lunar environment. The team will conduct research in robotics, cosmology, astrophysics and the study of the sun. Read more here.

 In late May 2017, College of Engineering and Applied Science will be hosting jointly with Stanford and MIT a 2017 Women in Aerospace Symposium. This will be a unique opportunity for outstanding women doctoral and postdoctoral researchers to present their work, and to network with their colleagues, university faculty, industry, and government professionals. The Symposium will include technical presentations, talks by leaders in the aerospace field, and panel discussions about academic careers. Presenters will be selected through a competitive application process. To lean more and apply, click here

Headlines From The 2017 Space Symposium

Posted: April 12, 2017

It was great seeing Colorado Space Business Roundtable representatives at last week's Space Symposium in Colorado Springs.

Members, be sure to join CSBR's Space Symposium discussion circle for a more in-depth discussion of -- and idea-sharing around -- this year's symposium.

As usual, the event created a lot of headlines. Here are a few:

NASA Flight Opportunities (FO): Technology Advancement Utilizing Suborbital Flight Opportunities

Posted: April 11, 2017 

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Headquarters has released a solicitation, titled “NASA Flight Opportunities (FO): Technology Advancement Utilizing Suborbital Flight Opportunities”. The program strategically invests in the growth of the commercial spaceflight market while helping advance technologies that will enable future space missions for science and exploration by selecting promising technologies from industry, academia, and government to test on commercial suborbital launch vehicles, reduced gravity aircraft and high-altitude balloon flights.

The purpose of this Appendix is to provide funding for the testing or demonstration of crosscutting space technologies in relevant environments through flights on reusable suborbital launch vehicles, reduced gravity aircraft, and high-altitude balloons. These flight tests should fit into an overall technology maturation plan as a bridge between laboratory testing and demonstration in Earth orbit or beyond.

Applications are due on or before June 2, 2017, and selections will be announced in September 2017 (target). The solicitation is available by opening the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at, selecting "Solicitations," then selecting "Open Solicitations," and, selecting "NASA Flight Opportunities (FO)." To go directly to the solicitation page, visit

The Flight Opportunities program will conduct two Q&A sessions to provide an overview of the solicitation and to answer questions about the proposal process. The dates for the sessions will be announced in the near future. See the solicitation page on NSPIRES for more details.
