A New Generation...A Multi-User Spaceport
The Future Development Plan builds upon the core strategies described in the Future Development Concept, including:
Building on this strategic foundation, the Future Development Plan describes the stages that will facilitate KSC’s transformation to an economically sustainable multi-user spaceport. To support this transformation, the Future Development Plan outlines a comprehensive strategy that integrates a variety of factors, including development, land use, the consolidation of NASA assets, and transportation and utility infrastructure. The goal is to right-size NASA operations without impacting mission objectives and support the proliferation of non-NASA aerospace opportunities and partnerships at KSC.
The Kennedy Space Center vision is enabled by an overall planning strategy that includes initiatives and supporting actions correlated to each of the components of the Future Development Plan. Initiatives and actions are also correlated to the operating model stages that support the transformation of KSC. The Future Development Plan provides a comprehensive guidance for KSC to transform from a single, government-user launch complex to a multi-user spaceport through a variety of interconnected components and strategies including:
Correlation of planning horizons and transformation stages are indicated to provide a context and framework to implement initiatives and actions, as well as fully leverage KSC's space market opportunities.
