Defense & Military

From Missions to Mars to National Security.

From satellite operations to space exploration, Colorado Springs is a global leader in aerospace education, research, and innovation, making it an attractive location for aerospace and defense companies. Colorado has the second-largest space economy in the U.S., with more than 240,000 workers in the state’s aerospace industry alone.

In addition to the region’s major aerospace-related military commands and private companies, Colorado Springs is home to the National Cybersecurity Center, Catalyst Campus, and Space ISAC, the only all-threats security information source for the public and private space sector.

When your business becomes a Chamber & EDC member, we get to know your team, product or service offerings, and share a host of tools aimed at enhanced growth and defense community networking. You’re not only entering into a partnership with us, but plugging into the much larger Colorado Springs and Colorado defense business network. Whether you are an aerospace, space, cybersecurity, solutions integrator, or genearl contractor, providing contract support to the US military, we are here to help.  Let us use our defense solutions integrator knowledge of the local area and provide your team the tailored resources you need to take your organization to the next level.
