The Aerospace Corporation has provided independent technical and scientific research, development, and advisory services to national-security space programs since 1960. We operate a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) for the United States Air Force and the National Reconnaissance Office and support all national-security space programs. We also apply more than 40 years of experience with space systems to projects for civil agencies like NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, commercial companies, universities, and some international organizations in the national interest.

From our inception, our highly skilled technical people have focused on ensuring the success of every mission and developing the most effective and economic space-related hardware and software in the world. We don't manufacture anything. Our greatest asset is the technical expertise of our people. Our involvement spans all facets of space systems: including systems engineering, testing, analysis, and development; acquisition support; launch readiness and certification; anomaly resolution; and the application of new technologies for existing and next-generation space systems. Our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities are staffed by some of the leading scientists in the world.

At Aerospace, we recognize the importance of recruiting, nurturing, and retaining the industry’s leading talent. Are you a recent graduate who loves to solve the most complex technical issues? Would you welcome the opportunity to grow in a stimulating environment, working with and learning from some of the best and the brightest? We are looking for new graduates with a strong desire to work in a dynamic environment that stresses integrity, creativity, and commitment to delivering space mission success. If you have a passion for excellence and a desire to make a difference, we want to hear from you.

The Aerospace Corporation emphasizes inclusion and diversity in the workforce. Our company president, Wanda Austin, is a brilliant African American woman. At my location in particular, we have a strong and effective Women's Committee that I am heavily involved in. We are a large group of laid-back ladies who conduct many projects to benefit the South Valley Care Center, a nursing home for senior citizens.
