Spaceport Planning & Licensing
Whether your planned spaceport is a green field site or the evolution of an existing airport/launch site, RS&H can help turn your concept into reality. New suborbital, vertically, and horizontally launched spacecraft enable suborbital adventure tourism and may soon provide point-to-point rapid transportation of goods and passengers. New orbital spacecraft, launchers, and on-orbit systems are driving a new renaissance in low Earth orbit (LEO) and beyond. Our teams can guide communities, states, private entities, national governments, and/or airport officials through the process of becoming a licensed Federal Aviation Administration spaceport and generating long-term market demand-centric infrastructure and organizational master plans. We support spaceport development for state and federal space agencies, space entrepreneurs, large defense contractors, and forward-thinking municipalities and aviation authorities.
