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.

NASA’s top boss, Jim Bridenstine, visited the CU Boulder campus Friday morning. 

It wasn't just to check out their brand-new aerospace engineering building, but to meet some of the students that will be designing the future of space.

On his tour of the new facility, Bridenstine saw students building drones that can withstand harsh atmospheric conditions. He saw them building miniature space-ready science satellites, and watched them test a virtual reality program designed to train astronauts for space missions.

Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), the global aerospace and national security leader owned by Chairwoman and President Eren Ozmen and CEO Fatih Ozmen, selected United Launch Alliance (ULA) as the launch vehicle provider for the Dream Chaser® spacecraft’s six NASA missions to the International Space Station. The Dream Chaser will launch aboard ULA’s Vulcan Centaur rockets for its cargo resupply and return services to the space station, starting in 2021.

“Dream Chaser can launch from any conventional rocket so we had great options,” said SNC CEO Fatih Ozmen.  “SNC selected ULA because of our strong collaboration on the Dream Chaser program, their proven safety record and on-time performance. This is bringing America’s spaceplane and America’s rocket together for best-of-breed innovation and exploration.”
