NASA WELCOMES XCOR AEROSPACE TO FLORIDA
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA's Kennedy Space Center looks forward to potential partnership with XCOR Aerospace. The company is looking at Florida as a possible location for their operations that could bring new work for highly skilled former space shuttle employees to Brevard County.
XCOR Aerospace is a small, privately held California corporation with focus on the research, development, project management and production of reusable launch vehicles, or RLVs, rocket engines and rocket propulsion systems.
"We look forward to discussing with XCOR Aerospace and other space companies how Kennedy's unique capabilities may be made available for use," said Kennedy's Center Director Bob Cabana. "This is further evidence that the Space Coast is preparing for the next era of space exploration."
"The next era in space exploration is under way, and the Space Coast of Florida is ground zero in the Obama administration's effort to launch Americans from U.S. soil and create good jobs that support an economy built to last," said NASA Chief of Staff David Radzanowski. "The region continues to be a key strategic location for companies, like XCOR, who want to build on our nation's great legacy of innovation and entrepreneurship."
A dynamic infrastructure is taking shape, one designed to host many kinds of spacecraft and rockets sending people on America's next adventures. Negotiations are taking place with other commercial users for Orbiter Processing Facility Bays 1 and 2, as well as with potential commercial users of the Launch Complex 39 launch pads. These and other partnerships will cement Kennedy as a true multiuser spaceport as envisioned by our nation's leadership.
