The FAA's Office of Commercial Space Transportation yesterday issued its first commercial spaceport operators license to Spaceport Systems International (SSI), a joint venture between ITT Federal Services Corp. and California Commercial Spaceport Inc.
First launch from the commercial facilities leased from the Air Force at Vandenberg AFB, Calif., could come in the fourth quarter of next year, according to Cheryl Waller, SSI business development manager.
