Commercial Spaceflight Federation Announces New Members

Boeing, Paragon Join At Executive Level

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation announced Tuesday that several companies have joined the organization. “Interest and activity in commercial spaceflight continue to blossom at both traditional and new space companies,” said CSF President Michael Lopez-Alegria. “It is very satisfying to see the Commercial Spaceflight Federation’s membership expand to include such a preponderance of the players in the commercial space panorama.”

“The Commercial Spaceflight Federation board voted unanimously to approve the new members, all of which are leaders in commercial spaceflight," said CSF Chairma Stuart Witt. "As the industry grows, it becomes even more important to have a strong, united voice for pro-commercial policies and programs.”

Joining as Executive Members are:

The Boeing Company: Boeing Space Exploration division, headquartered in Houston, is at the forefront of development of new spacecraft systems, as it has been since the beginning of the Space Age. For more than 50 years, Boeing has designed, developed, built, and operated human and robotic space vehicles as well as supporting hardware: from the X-15 to Gemini, Mercury, Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, the International Space Station (ISS), Commercial Crew Development and the Space Launch System. NASA's Commercial Crew initiative is providing a unique opportunity for Boeing to accelerate development of its Commercial Crew Transportation System (CCTS) that will provide a domestic capability for crew to access the International Space Station.

“We are proud to join the Commercial Space Federation and help support the stimulation of this exciting new market”, said John Mulholland, Vice President and Program Manager, Boeing Commercial Crew Program. “We believe that our unique combination of commercial aviation and legacy human spaceflight experience will be beneficial to the community as we move forward.”

Paragon Space Development Corporation: Paragon is the premier provider of environmental controls for extreme and hazardous environments. Paragon SDC designs, builds, tests and operates premier life support systems and leading thermal control products for astronauts, contaminated water divers, and other extreme environment explorers, as well as for unmanned space and terrestrial applications.

Joining as Associate Members are:

Firestar Technologies: Firestar Technologies is a research and development company funded through both government grants and private investment. The firm has a rich intellectual property portfolio including NOFBXTM “green” propulsion, SonicExhaust aftermarket exhaust technology, and several developments in power conversion and next generation renewable energy technologies.

Golden Spike Company: Golden Spike plans to provide complete, turn-key commercial human lunar expeditions to countries, corporations, and individuals. The company is conducting lunar architecture and systems design studies with leading aerospace companies, and will be taking flight reservations and entering into vehicle development and flight contracts in the near future.

Spaceflight Services: Spaceflight is a one-stop shop that rapidly manifests, certifies and integrates secondary payloads on a suite of established and emerging launch and space transportation vehicles. Published commercial pricing reduces project planning and budgeting risks, and having a single point of contact simplifies integration efforts by enabling customers to plan to standardized processes while retaining access to multiple launch opportunities. Spaceflight has launch contracts to fly secondary payloads on several launch vehicles.
