Space Systems Command has debuted a center in Chantilly, Virginia, to encourage collaboration among companies and government agencies to accelerate the delivery of commercial space systems to the military.

SSC said Tuesday the Commercial Space Marketplace for Innovation and Collaboration center, or COSMIC, is a partnership between the command and Virginia Tech Applied Research Corp.

“The physical space and supporting services provided through COSMIC provide a place and means for us all to get together and best collaborate on commercial space capabilities, warfighter requirements, and how to best deliver those capabilities,” said Col. Richard Kniseley, senior materiel leader for SSC’s commercial space office.

The collaboration facility also accommodates STEM outreach, analysis, technology transition, transfer advisement and workforce development support the university affiliated nonprofit research organization offers.

SSC intends for the center to also support COMSO’s strategy to enable “fight tonight” capabilities by advancing commercial tech and service transfer initiatives.
