The three-storey, 90,000 sq ft building will house up to 200 employees, and most of it will be set up to conduct classified work. It will support such customers as US Space Command and the US Space Force, both of which were recently created to counter increasing threats in space.

“Aerospace’s facility will be the focal point for delivering technical expertise across the space enterprise to outpace threats to national security,” the company said. “The building’s digital engineering environment will enable high-fidelity analysis and physics-based modelling and simulations as well as development of tactics, techniques, and procedures that will provide insight into space warfighting.”

Aerospace held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new building on 23 September. Construction is slated to be finished in spring 2022.
