NASA Issues Announcement For Kennedy Space Center Land Use Proposals

TRANSFORMATION TO A MULTI-USER SPACEPORT

By nasa.gov  //  June 3, 2015

NASA – NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida has released an announcement for proposals for private companies interested in developing commercial vertical launch sites at the multi-user spaceport.
The announcement is part of Kennedy’s continued transformation to a multi-user spaceport based on effectively utilizing land assets identified in the center’s 20-year Master Plan.
“We strongly encourage companies to provide proposals for developing space launch services and capabilities at the Kennedy Space Center,” said Scott Colloredo, director of Kennedy’s Center Planning and Development.
 “We have transformed to a multi-user spaceport and look forward to new commercial partnerships as KSC supports emerging space markets. Making this land available is yet another step in our evolution to a diverse spaceport that supports NASA and commercial partners.”
As a separate activity, Kennedy also will release a notice of availability for undeveloped land not suitable for launch operations to potentially support vertical landings, launch assembly, testing and processing support activities.
