BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Advanced Space LLC., a Boulder, CO company that designs software and provides specialized services for NASA, the U.S. Air Force, and commercial operators, announced today that it was selected from among 113 companies to receive a $250,000 Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (COEDIT).
This grant, announced in May, was created by COEDIT to “fund companies commercializing innovative technologies to create viable products that meet a market need and can be created or manufactured in Colorado and exported globally.” Applications were reviewed by select committees of business, technical and financial experts.
This matching grant will complement a recently signed contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for Advanced Space to continue the development of a peer-to-peer navigation system for the Moon.
“Colorado has a long history of leadership and excellence in supporting humanity’s mission to visit, learn and live among the stars, most notably the global positioning system (GPS) we all use every day to travel on Earth,” said Bradley Cheetham, CEO of Advanced Space. “It’s exciting to think that our company can be part of a new generation of Colorado space companies that will support American, commercial, and international missions off-planet for decades to come.”
