Description
The Aerospace Corporation has provided independent technical and scientific research, development, and advisory services to national-security space programs since 1960. The Aerospace Corporation operates a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) for the United States Air Force and the National Reconnaissance Office and support all national-security space programs. They also apply more than 40 years of experience with space systems to projects for civil agencies like NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, commercial companies, universities, and some international organizations in the national interest. They do not manufacture anything. Their greatest asset is the technical expertise of their people. Their involvement spans all facets of space systems: including systems engineering, testing, analysis, and development; acquisition support; launch readiness and certification; anomaly resolution; and the application of new technologies for existing and next-generation space systems. Their state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are staffed by some of the leading scientists in the world
