A Message From the Chair

Posted: May 17, 2019

We are already in May, getting ready to breathe a bit easier with another successful Space Symposium behind us, we now look forward to cultivating our efforts for the rest of the year.   The Colorado Aerospace community is growing in ways that we would not have imagined just a few years ago.  The growth of our satellite industry and adjacent support businesses are enabling Colorado to maintain its status as #1 in aerospace employment, per capita.  Growing companies are having big successes receiving NASA Grants and enabling larger mission success. Companies such as Advanced Space, Roccor, and Red Canyon Engineering. Colorado primes are continuing to push forward with new satellite launches by Lockheed Martin Space Systems and United Launch Alliance.

More Colorado companies than ever are being funded by NASA Phase II Grants for cutting edge research and development.  We are second only to California, which received 12 more than Colorado and the next closest is Virginia, with 11 grants.  See below more highlights of our Colorado companies in upcoming newsletters.

On another note, CSBR wants to hear from you! It is important that we hear your voice to ensure we are doing our part to support you and the Colorado aerospace ecosystem. Please take 5 – 8 minutes to give us your thoughts about your membership and its value. Take the member survey here.
