The Silicon Valley Space Center (SVSC) will roll out its plan for use of Moffett Federal Airfield (MFA) on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. PST, at the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, Calif.

The event will allow organizations and individuals to learn about how to lease office and lab space under a proposal SVSC will submit to operate and maintain MFA and to rehabilitate and reuse Hangar One.

The plan is in response to a request for proposals (RFP) that has issued by NASA and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). MFA and Hangar One are currently under the management of NASA Ames Research Center.

The space agency has declared the facilities as excess property that can be redeveloped for public and private uses. Hangar One has been stripped of its siding and its metal frame is now open to the elements. The successful bidder will be required to re-skin the facility and make use of the hangar.

According to the meeting announcement on Eventbright:

The Silicon Valley Space Center at Moffett Field has AMAZING benefits for Air and Space Companies, which include but are not limited to access to:

  • Silicon Valley Funding
  • Airfield
  • 3 Historic Hangars
  • Aeronautical and Space Alliances

  • Next Generation Office and Lab Space
