Science Applications International Corp.

The agreement, a Memorandum of Understanding, was signed at the Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, by David Ray, SAIC Senior Vice President of Space, and Frank Tobin, Executive Chairman of GomSpace North America.

“I am delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with SAIC”, says Carsten Drachmann, CEO of GomSpace, “SAIC is heavily investing in space capabilities and systems integration for critical missions like space domain awareness, autonomous rendezvous and proximity operations, and in-orbit servicing, This in combination with GomSpace’s extensive flight heritage in the SmallSat market, creates a very strong and competitive value proposition to both commercial and government customers in the US and across the Americas”.

Both companies have made recent advancements in space capability. SAIC is investing in a Space Systems Development Center within its 300,000 square foot Integration Facility in Charleston, South Carolina. The facility will perform payload, CubeSat, SmallSat, and launch rideshare integration in a single continuous flow.

GomSpace’s unique experience in designing and manufacturing satellite components and integrated satellite solutions pairs well with the space systems integration and government mission expertise of SAIC.
