In an interview with SpaceNews, Aerospace Corp. CEO Steve Isakowitz says unprecedented opportunities are emerging for national security space organizations to capture commercial innovation. Defense programs won’t transform overnight, he says, but change is definitely in the air.
The Aerospace Corp., an early adopter of the cubesat standard, is proposing a new shape for small satellites: a thin, round plate.
The U.S. government is poised to make large investments in environmental monitoring satellites but these efforts are not well coordinated, says a new report by the Aerospace Corp.
A new study by the Aerospace Corp. says there are growing opportunities for national security agencies to buy commercial services.
The Aerospace Corp. is calling for U.S. government agencies to work together to develop space solar power technologies in a paper that underscores the importance of collaborating with international partners.
Aerospace Corp.'s policy center rolled out "Space Agenda 2021" to influence discussions in the next administration.
The Aerospace Corp. is working to license commercially a laser communications subsystem that downlinked data at a rate of 200 megabits per second from three-unit cubesats.
The new building is expected to open in spring 2022.
It’s not easy for commercial geospatial intelligence products to make their way into day-to-day operations of defense and intelligence agencies.
Retired general Paul Selva, former DoD official Kathleen Hicks and former NASA official Dava Newman were elected to the Aerospace board of trustees
Air Force and NRO cubesats were among many experimental projects encapsulated in the NG-12 Cygnus mission.
The new contract includes support services for the Space Rapid Capabilities Office and the Space Development Agency.
NASA awarded the Aerospace Corp. an engineering, evaluation and testing support contract with a maximum potential value of $621 million over nine years.
A deep-rooted organization like SMC with more than 5,000 employees and a $7 billion budget is not going to change overnight, but it’s taking small steps.
Falcon Heavy’s first commercial launch to pave the way for reusable rockets in national security missions
The data from the Arabsat 6A mission could determine how soon the Air Force will be ready to certify reused boosters.
At a conference last week hosted by the Aerospace Corp.in El Segundo, California, officials from the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center talked about a future space architecture that will be more flexible and resilient to threats than current constellations.
No longer the province of university researchers and technology developers, small satellites are moving into the aerospace mainstream.
Instead of designing satellites years before they launch to perform specific tasks, what if small multipurpose satellites were designed for a variety of jobs? And what if those satellites could be launched separately before linking in orbit to perform one mission, then reconfigured to tackle a different job? That’s the concept behind the Aerospace Corporation’s adaptable multipurpose satellite concept, called Hive.
