KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (NASA PR) — NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida has released a notice of availability for undeveloped land to potentially support activities in launch operations and support, assembly, testing and processing of space systems, renewable energy, research and development, and vertical launch and landing. The announcement is part of Kennedy’s transformation to a multi-user spaceport based on effectively utilizing land assets identified in the center’s 20-year Master Plan.

“We look forward to new commercial partnerships as KSC supports emerging space markets. Making this land available is yet another step in our evolution as a diverse spaceport that supports NASA and the commercial space industry,” said Scott Colloredo, director of Kennedy’s Center Planning and Development.

The center has transformed from a government-focused launch base to a multi-user spaceport that can accommodate different vehicles, systems and commercial launch providers. Kennedy features a host of launch and processing facilities, a one-of-a-kind runway and laboratories suited to multiple requirements. The center is well-equipped to support the full spectrum of needs for space launch service companies.
