Space Enterprise Consortium

SpEC provides rapid space technology innovations through its academic and commercial industry members.

About SpEC

The Space Enterprise Consortium (SpEC) was created in 2017 through the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center. SpEC was created to bridge the cultural gap between military buyers and commercial space startups and small businesses through OTAs. The OTA’s innovative contracting process allows SpEC to solicit bids from a mix of member companies including companies that have not previously done work with the DoD. The SpEC OTAs mission is to work to:

  • Minimize barriers to entry for small businesses and non-traditional vendors
  • Promote integrated research and prototyping efficiencies
  • Leverage partnerships to increase flexibility and agility, reduce cost, improve technology and decrease program development cycles
