Alaska Aerospace Changes Name of Rocket Launch Complex
New name reflects great service coverage for customers Anchorage, Alaska - The Kodiak Launch Complex is no longer, in name at least. Alaska Aerospace Corporation (AAC), a premier aerospace company that owns and operates the non-Federal Kodiak Launch Complex, announces that it is renaming the facility “Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska” (PSCA) to reflect the growing capability of AAC to meet customer requirements and its broader aerospace commitment to the Pacific region. "The Pacific Spaceport Complex provides launch services throughout the region, as well as from our traditional home in Alaska," Craig Campbell, President and CEO of AAC said. "We are ready and willing to serve customers to meet their polar orbit and certain equatorial orbit needs beyond the fixed location in Kodiak."
The name change reflects a shift in culture and the recent steps to expand beyond traditional launch services based solely on the Kodiak Launch Complex facilities. "AAC is full-service aerospace company offering launch support services, mobile launch range services, launch engineering services, and a willingness to solve problems with the superior customer service of a small company," Mark Greby, Vice President and Chief Operating Office said. “AAC is developing advanced capabilities to offer launch services and other supporting spaceport services throughout the Pacific region. With a mobile range safety and telemetry system and a mobile launch services team, PSCA can assist customers in launch services for satellites beyond our traditional base in Kodiak, as well as providing engineering services for spaceport design and operation.” Campbell said. "The sky is not the limit, as we prove every day," Matt Steele, Vice President for Business Development said. "We are working on projects to deliver spacecraft to orbit via innovative and cost-effective delivery systems with lower range costs."
The aerospace industry has worldwide interests and AAC is focused on providing low-cost, schedule reliable services to a broad host of customers across the region. AAC’s business is not limited to working in Alaska, but the company headquarters will remain in Alaska. "We have the ambition, the energy, and the relationships with our partners to assist customers with a variety of spaceport and launch business needs in the Pacific area," Campbell said.
