The Vision Spaceport Partnership

In 1998, the Kennedy Space Center entered into a Joint Sponsored Research Agreement (JSRA), the Vision Spaceport Partnership (VSP). Partners included the Ames Research Center, the Institute for Simulation and Training of the University of Central Florida, Barker-Ramos & Associates, the Boeing Company, Command and Control Technologies Corporation, Lockheed Martin Corporation and Science Applications International Corporation / Pat Rawlings. All parties contributed to the partnership and worked towards achieving the objectives of the agreement.

 

This partnership was dedicated to promoting R&D between government, industry and academia to help conceive revolutionary new spaceport architectures and space launch operations capabilities. This R&D partnership advanced the development of design tools or models for the purpose of guiding and thus advancing the state of the art in spaceport performance.
