Tysons, Va. – LMI today announced its title sponsorship and establishment of the Space Force Association (SFA) Space Center of Excellence (COE). The purpose of the Space COE is to provide lean, agile connections and cooperation across space domain educational initiatives and to promote commercial-government-academia research, development, and ideas to promote U.S. Space Force capabilities. The Space COE guides a community of professionals in the pursuit of space domain knowledge. Focus areas include science, technology, policy, and strategy to further the nation’s capabilities. The Space COE enhances the discovery and understanding of the opportunities to contribute to space endeavors and the implications of commercial, civil, military, education, and private enterprises exploring and pursuing those opportunities.
“LMI is a thought leader and trusted partner to the Department of Defense. We are extremely excited to partner with the talent and expertise of LMI to stand up the Space COE. The first task will be to help quantify challenges and opportunities for the U.S. Space Force and the Guardians assigned. LMI brings a dedicated organization that can apply its experience, objectivity, and resources to enable the continued success of the Space Force through the Center of Excellence.”
