The Aerospace Corporation provides architect-engineer services for military space and launch systems, and for other projects related to national security. Aerospace performs engineering, planning, analysis, and research for constantly evolving advanced systems. Aerospaces work is primarily under contract to the Space Systems Division of the Air Force Systems Command, providing support in the planning, design, development, and operations of complex space systems. To carry out this mission it is necessary for the Corporation to engage in a vigorous and continuing research and development program. Aerospaces research and development efforts advance critical technologies needed for present and future military space systems. They contribute directly to Aerospaces missions conceptual design, systems engineering, launch readiness verification, on-orbit diagnostics, and anomaly analysis and to the assessment of mission performance and cost and schedule risks. To support military space programs most effectively, Aerospace must contribute in those advanced technologies and analytical fields critical to the timely acquisition and operation of cost-effective military space systems. To do so requires a research and development program that provides insight into probable advanced in science and technology, likely new missions, and the evolution of present military space systems that will help accomplish those missions.
