Colorado Companies Continue to Contribute to Space Exploration

Posted: August 26, 2019

The state of Colorado is on a mission to become #1 outright in the US space industry. Colorado companies were the top recipient of SBIR grants, with Advanced Space, Red Canyon Software, and Roccor and many others which put us near the top of NASA’s SBIR list with 31grants being awarded to Colorado companies.  Several Colorado companies are on the list of industry partners for NASA’s Moon to Mars Missions.    New companies have opened up new offices here in Colorado.  Astroscale has formally moved their US headquarters to Denver.  Japan’s PD AeroSpace has secured office and testing space at the Colorado Air and SpacePort.

Colorado companies are partnering with each other to create opportunities here in the state (See the SNC and ULA story below). Many of the small companies are continuing to grow and expand in Colorado. General Dynamics did ground -reaking on a new facility in Colorado Springs. We also celebrate Oakman Aerospace, Inc for being named as one the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies

We are excited to see the success of these companies, as they continue to put Colorado on the map and establish our state as a valuable asset in the Space exploration efforts both government, academia, and commercial efforts. CSBR is happy to be a champion and supporter of all of these companies, each of which makes Colorado a force in the industry.
