Notes from the Chair

It’s been a minute…

Our newsletter has not been seen in a minute, but that does not mean the work has stopped. Colorado Aerospace has been busy growing and developing, as well as supporting our local communities. CSBR conducted a very successful first Virtual Road Trip, where we “visited” Ft. Lewis College in Durango as well as a virtual tour and test demo with Agile Space Industries.  Ft. Lewis College’s enrollment is just over half students of color, with 47% being Native American.  We had the opportunity to tour their new launched Innovation Center to allow students exposure to the Aerospace industry not just through STEM studies but also the business activities that support the industry. We look forward to working with Ft. Lewis College and our other academic partners to enrich Colorado Aerospace.

CSBR celebrates all the diversity that makes our community successful –  the diversity of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, and culture. Today, June 19th, is the official celebration of Juneteenth.  It is also a celebration of Pride Month. I hope you take time to learn about and celebrate both of these events. 

Engage, Connect & Thrive!

“This year, we will improve the performance and the price is going to come down,” York Executive Chairman Chuck Beames told SpaceNews. “Our platform is becoming much more capable.”

Catalyst Accelerator Applications for Next Cohort Open Now

The Catalyst Accelerator (CA) announced its next cohort, Cyber for Space Applications, launching September 1, 2020. The goal of the CA is to increase Space Force awareness and rapid acquisition of commercial, dual-use space technology by providing relevant business development training to Accelerator companies and connecting these entrepreneurs with users, decision makers, and potential new customers in the DoD and commercial realms. Eight companies will be chosen to participate in the program held at Catalyst Campus in Colorado Springs, Colorado. “How might we apply cyber technologies to secure the next generation of space operations and increase resiliency?” the problem statement poses. Cyber-physical systems are becoming more integral than ever before, introducing new sets of unique problems in both public and private sectors. It is vital that we come together to identify, understand and limit areas where threats could arise before they are exploited.
