Ecuador Spaceport

Private Facility in the Equatorial Line to maximize launch vehicles fuel savings and payload maximization

Our Space Port plan is for it to be strategically located in Ecuador, taking advantage of the rotational speed of the Equatorial Line.  We are developing the first aerospace and technological ecosystem that will be the gateway for future private sector exploration and colonization. Having our own private Space Port will facilitate the construction of our first Space Station in geostationary orbit.

Space Florida

Space Florida is an ‘independent special district’ of the state and serves as the spaceport authority for the Cape Canaveral Spaceport (CCS). The CCS is recognized in Florida statute as encompassing the Kennedy Space Center and the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station where Space Florida provides a host of services to the growing commercial space marketplace. Increasingly, those services to the private sector include the ownership of major facilities and equipment, roads and bridges, collaborating with utilities to provide power and commodities, and in certain locations on the CCS Space Florida also provides building permits and Certificates of Occupancy.   All the active pads at the Cape are either owned outright or have significant investments by Space Florida. Collectively, there are over $1.5B in facility and infrastructure investments in the Cape where financing and tax efficiencies by Space Florida have helped to create a manufacturing hub for rockets, capsules, satellites and the supply chain to support those activities. The vast majority of those investments are with private sector capital. Nowhere on earth is the future vision of a commercial spaceport becoming a reality more than at the Cape.

Stennis Spaceport (Mississippi)

John C. Stennis Space Center in south Mississippi is one of 10 NASA field centers in the United States. Because of its important role in engine testing for more than five decades, Stennis is NASA’s program manager for rocket propulsion testing with total responsibility for conducting and/or managing all NASA propulsion test programs.

Stennis tested the first and second Saturn V rocket stages for NASA’s Apollo Program, including those used to carry humans to the moon. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, there was a saying in the communities surrounding Stennis, “If you want to go to the moon, you first have to go through Hancock County, Mississippi.”

Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport Spaceport (Texas)

Located in the southernmost part of Texas with quick access to the Gulf of Mexico & the US Interstate highway system, the Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport (BRO) serves as a strategic port of entry. The airport is also a familiar beacon to the US for all international and domestic air carriers, as well to corporate and general aviation operators flying through the world’s airspace system.  At BRO, we have two runways capable of serving 95% of the existing commercial fleet and 100% of the corporate and general aviation fleet. The airport is equipped with three types of instrument approaches that allow to safely conduct air operations even in adverse weather conditions, a Federal Inspection Station open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and two fixed base operators on the field.  BRO commissioned a consulting firm to conduct a Spaceport Feasibility Study, the document is in its final stage before 100% deliverables, however, the primary result is a determination of “feasible” for a horizontal-launch concept with an associated spaceport launch site operator’s license for BRO. A horizontal launch capability would demonstrate a full spectrum of spaceport options and would potentially complement the vertical launch capabilities nearby (Boca Chica Launch Site)

Portugal Space

The national Portuguese space agency – Portugal Space – is a private, not-for-profit organization, created by the Portuguese Government, as the most modern space agency in the world. The Agency has as its primary purpose to promote and strength space, its ecosystem and value chain in Portugal for the benefit of society and economies in the country and worldwide, acting as a business and development unit for universities, research entities and companies.    The national strategy for space, “Portugal Space 2030”, sets the fields of focus Earth Observation, Space Safety, Space Transportation, and Telecommunications, including related downstream activities, working towards the vision for Portugal – an Atlantic nation, with a rich and global maritime tradition – to be recognised, by 2030, as a global authority in the science and economics of Space-Earth-Climate-Oceans interactions for the benefit of society and economy.    It is in this context that “Democratization of Space” in terms of the full integration of space into economy and society in a sustainable manner, both environmental (in space and on-Earth) as well as economic is approached and that the motto “clean Oceans with clean Space” can be placed. And it is in this context that the Azores International Satellite Launch Programme was launched.    Portugal Space is committed to fostering the effort of democratisation of space (access and use) at internationally competitive prices through industry-led public-private-partnership developments for a spaceport and micro launchers for small satellites to be installed in the Azores. The spaceport, which would be located in Santa Maria island, is a joint initiative of the Portuguese Government and the regional authorities of the Azores, being carried out with technical support from the Portugal Space.
