Second Lockheed Martin-Built Next Generation GPS III Satellite Responding To Commands, Under Self-Propulsion

Posted: August 26, 2019

First GPS III Satellite Successfully Completes On-Orbit Testing

The U.S. Air Force's second next-generation GPS III satellite, built by Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), is responding to commands, under control and now using its own internal propulsion system to get to orbit following its successful launch this morning.

At about 11:01 a.m. ET, Air Force and Lockheed Martin engineers at Lockheed Martin's Launch & Checkout Facility near Denver declared they had full control of GPS III Space Vehicle 02 (GPS III SV02) shortly after the satellite's separation from its United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV rocket booster. The satellite, nicknamed "Magellan" by the Air Force, began its rocket ride to space with a 9:06 a.m. ET launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

GPS III SV02 is now climbing towards its operational orbit about 12,550 miles above the earth under the power of its own Liquid Apogee engines. Engineers at Lockheed Martin Space's Waterton, Colorado facility are commanding the satellite using elements of the GPS Next Generation Operational Control System (OCX) Block 0.

Aerospace States Association Annual Meeting

Posted: August 5, 2019

Colorado is a member of the Aerospace States Association. ASA is an organization of state Lieutenant Governors, Governor appointed delegates, State Legislators and associate members from the aerospace industry, academia, and non-profit organizations. ASA brings together aviation and aerospace interests across each state to educate state legislators on issues specific to their state and provide networking opportunities to grow jobs and expand economic development. As leaders in our state governments, ASA members not only impact policy at the state level, but also at the federal level, by informing our congressional delegations on aerospace priorities.

We have a strong presence within the organization. Colorado’s Lt. Governor Diana Primavera was elected as vice-chair of the overall ASA Organization, while the Colorado State organization is made up of three vice-chairs: Colorado Space Business Roundtable, Colorado Space Coalition, and Citizens for Space Exploration. With several Colorado members chairing committees such as Joe Rice of Lockheed Martin, who is the chair of the Policy Committee.

This year, the annual meeting was hosted by the state of Alabama.  During the annual summit, attendees toured NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and Colorado headquartered ULA rocket factory. Key Policy issues that were discussed included workforce development, state Spaceport updates, and legislative strategies to support the growth of the aerospace industry.  Colorado will be the host of the 2020 annual policy meeting. We look forward to sharing the Colorado experience with our fellow ASA members.

Check out the highlights, pictures and presentations from the 2019 Annual Meeting and Sate Aerospace Policy Summit. http://www.aerostates.org/highlights-asa-2019-annual-meeting.html

 

PREPARING FOR TAKEOFF: Countdown to Spaceport Colorado launch inches closer, still miles away

Colorado’s aerospace industry is like an engine, and it’s hot.

That’s how Adams County Commissioner Steve O’dorisio likens the momentum of interest in the state a year after the designation of SpacePort Colorado at the Front Range Airport in Watkins, just outside of Aurora.

O’Dorisio, like many other state and local government officials, say Colorado’s Front Range is now uniquely positioned to attract international business to the state because of the facility, which boasts that “the first mile is free.” Mile high area. Get it?

That’s one reason why Shuji Ogawa, founder of Japanese-based PD Aerospace, is excited to work with SpacePort Colorado.

PD Aerospace signed a letter of intent in April saying that it would “explore future usage of Colorado Air and Space Port, with both parties expressing willingness to cooperate, and shall become (the) basis for a deeper relation in the future.” The company is looking to develop a fully reusable ballistic spaceplane.
