Aerospace

The Aerospace Corporation has provided independent technical and scientific research, development, and advisory services to national security space (NSS) programs since 1960. We operate a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) for the United States Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO). We also apply more than 55 years of space systems experience to projects in the national interest for civil agencies like NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, commercial companies, universities, and international organizations.
