We invite you to learn more about the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and what technology it is currently pursuing in order to provide the most advanced Space capabilities.

Event Overview

SMC, a subordinate unit of the U.S. Space Force, is the center of technical excellence for developing, acquiring, fielding and sustaining military space systems. SMC’s mission is to deliver resilient and affordable space capabilities. The center is responsible for on-orbit check-out, testing, sustainment and maintenance of military satellite constellations and other Department of Defense space systems.

This AMA will be hosted by NSIN and subject matter experts from SMC, and give participants the opportunity to learn more about the AF203-CSO2 SBIR topic area in preparation for submitting Phase I SBIR applications.
