Benefits of Partnership

Benefits of Partnerships

Kennedy Space Center offers unique facilities and proven technical capabilities, as well as a resource of great importance—talent.  Our employees are highly trained and highly skilled with over 50 years of operational, advanced engineering and technological expertise.  Other benefits of partnership are:

Location: Kennedy Space Center is geographically situated at an optimal launch location for space missions requiring access to either equatorial or inclined orbits up to 60 degrees (north or south).

High-Tech Workforce: Florida’s Space Coast is America’s high-tech titan.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2010,  the Space Coast was No. 1 in the number of engineers per 1,000 workers.  The TechAmerica Foundation ranked it No. 5 in the U.S. for the concentration of a high-tech workforce.

Five Modes of Transportation: Kennedy Space Center has five modes of access available--air, sea, land, rail and space--making it the world’s only quintimodal transportation hub.

Streamlined Agreement Process and Safety Requirements: To ensure a faster and easier partnership experience for you, we have worked diligently to streamline our agreement process and safety requirements.
