Physical Assets

KSC offers a variety of facilities that are uniquely suited to support launch and aerospace activities, including a 15,000-foot runway, the space industry’s largest vehicle integration facility, payload processing facilities, launch control centers and vertical launch pads. Many of these facilities have the potential to support non-aerospace activities as well.  

The processing and launch infrastructure is available for use by commercial, non-profit and Government entities with a diverse array of needs and requirements, including assembly, testing, and processing as well as launch and landing, and research and development. In addition to space transportation, the facilities and systems are well-suited to support organizations working with satellite systems and payloads, adventure tourism, clean energy and many other emerging aerospace-related endeavors.

KSC also offers the opportunity for construction of new facilities for organizations that could benefit from the proximity to the diverse expertise and resources of the center and its ever-expanding base of commercial activities.  With 8,000 acres available for potential development within the borders of KSC, as well as property available just outside the gates at Exploration Park, there are plenty of options for those interested in becoming a part of the spaceport community.
