Edgar Johansson, right foreground, manager of strategic initiatives with LASP, leads the tour. (Kathryn Scott Osler, The Denver Post)   COLORADO SPRINGS — Oakman Aerospace president Stan Kennedy likely didn’t expect his small company would get a personal audience with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in the same week, on his home turf. But that’s exactly what happened when delegations from each agency, along with several aerospace companies from each country, took tours of Oakman’s Littleton headquarters last week. […]

Sharing spy satellite data with civilian users would be ‘game changer,’ space experts say

By |April 17th, 2015|

The Gazette, By Tom Roeder  Published: April 17, 2015  A treasure trove of Air Force satellite data that can be used to spot wildfires, monitor climate conditions and do hundreds of other tasks could emerge from a curtain of government secrecy. Air Force Space Command leaders are working on plans to share data from Space-Based Infrared System Satellites controlled by airmen at Aurora’s Buckley Air Force Base and Schriever Air Force Base in Colorado Springs. The effort is being led by Space Command’s Remote Sensing Directorate in Los Angeles, which also is looking at how to use the information for military intelligence. […]

Braxton Technologies Sets the Example – The 29th Annual National Space Symposium: Better Every Year

By |December 19th, 2014|

Published on Tuesday, 16 April 2013 17:17Neither rain, sleet, snow, hail, wind, nor dark of night will deter… Loosely Translated, Herodotus, Histories (8.98) …attendees at the 29th National Space Symposium from their appointed rounds. Seriously, folks, with apologies to postal workers everywhere, here in the Rocky Mountains it was 72 degrees on the eighth of April, the first day of the largest space symposium in the world. This morning, the ninth, the startled thermometer hovered around eleven degrees with snow, high winds and attendees searching for any outer wear they could find. And except for NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) personnel, everyone braved the weather and soldiered on. NASA, of course, one of the few government agencies with space in its name, decided they did not need to attend the National Space Symposium this year. But that is NASA’s loss and a story for another time, because more than 9,000 other dedicated space professionals did attend, and more than 170 companies provided major exhibits that filled to capacity the largest pillar-less exhibition hall west of the Mississippi. Just writing this makes my feet hurt. And the best part is this all takes place at the five-star Broadmoor Resort in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, hence Mother Nature’s raucous spring weather shenanigans. […]
