STRUCTURE & ROLE: Public Corporation & Independent Special District A Spaceport Authority Launch Complexes Space Life Sciences Lab / Exploration Park Shuttle Landing Facility An Economic Development Agency Creative Funding Tools Conduit Lease Finance Authority
Total # Aerospace-Related Companies* 11,638 Total # of Aerospace Industry Employees* 132,140 Total Aerospace Industries Sales/Revenues* $17,722,439,967 * From: 2013 Economic Impact of Aerospace in Florida by FSU Center for Economic Forecasting and Analysis Economic Impact of Aerospace in Florida
Space / Aerospace Industry Trends Strategic Assets Depleted... 20 Years of War. Decade Forecast of Stressed Federal Budgets Continued Industry Consolidations Continued Aging of the workforce International Technology Leveling
The Space Industry is Transitioning! … … … Private Sector Role Increasing! Global Space Industry Revenues from Commercial Sources, far exceed Government! Even without Sequestration, Federal Budgets for Space will be severely constrained. The Long-Standing Policy of Commercial Reliance in Government … … will Increase!
What Does Commercial Industry Mean? Private Sector at Risk, with Investment and a Management Team / Plan to reach Market! Will Include both NewSpace and OldSpace Companies … … many New Entrants. Government … Increasingly a Secondary Market Commercial & Flexible Contracting Structures CPFF Fixed Pricing/Fixed Schedule More Commercial Off-the-Shelf

Florida Spaceport System Plan Goals Create a stronger economy where Florida’s spaceports and aerospace businesses can thrive Guide public and private investment into emerging and growing aerospace enterprises and maximize the use of existing aerospace resources Enrich our quality of life while providing responsible environmental stewardship Advance a safer and secure spaceport transportation system for residents, businesses, and others
Cape Canaveral Spaceport Complex Master Plan Goals
Spaceport Master Plan Objectives/Goals Advance Commercial Heavy Lift Support Commercial Crew and Cargo Attract New Emerging Space Systems Expand Horizontal Launch and Landing Expand Statewide Space Capacity
New Initiatives Horizontal Site Development Initiatives Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) Cecil Spaceport... Others under consideration Florida Unmanned Systems Initiative Sites - statewide for UAS Operations New Commercial Site Initiative (Shiloh)
COMMERCIALIZE SHUTTLE LANDING FACILITY NASA’s formal decision June 2013 Multiple customers engaged for operations Assessing KSC Future Development Concept studies & designs for common infrastructure improvements, partnership & leverage opportunities Commercialization Roadmap Transfer Decision Agreement development Operations standup SLF improvements
FLORIDA’s Unmanned Aircraft System Initiative Aviation Management Florida’s UAS Team – Creating Opportunities Supporting the FAA ‘s safe, prudent integration of UAS technologies into National Air Space. State-wide capabilities includes ranges & air space, simulation & research centers, unique FAA approved next generation systems, university curriculums and industry partners. FAA UAS Test Site solicitation response submitted 6 May / Selection advertised for December 2013 / FAA Site verification visits / Formalizing agreements & procedures / Continuing operations opportunities UAS Industry Market Analysis GAO Report 15 Feb 2013 $89B Global Market $28.5B in Research 62% in US Research GUSC Indiantown Airport
Commercial Vertical Launch Initiative - Shiloh Targeting commercial launch market to complement the existing federal market & launch infrastructure Commercial launch operators addressing market demand for non- federal launch environment Effort aligned to FAA Office of Space Transportation (FAA-AST) Site Operators license process Shiloh Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in work NASA concurred with FAA Office of Space Transportation as Lead Agency with NASA KSC as Cooperating Agency for Shiloh EIS
