Jacksonville, FL– March 19, 2021– Redwire, a leading provider of mission solutions and high-reliability components for space infrastructure, commends the Biden Administration’s commitment to advancing the Artemis Program, expanding the development of Low Earth Orbit for industrial uses, and fortifying public-private partnerships for technology demonstration missions and space operations services with the nomination of The Honorable Bill Nelson for NASA Administrator.
“This is an important step to advance NASA’s exploration objectives and ensure we have the infrastructure and resources to maintain U.S. leadership in space.” said Andrew Rush, President & COO of Redwire and Chairman of the NASA Advisory Council’s Regulatory and Policy Committee. “As a long-serving Member of Congress in both the House and Senate, and a fellow member of the NASA Advisory Council, former Senator Nelson has been a champion for both the nation’s space program and important NASA Authorization bills. He has been a key proponent to ensuring that NASA has the resources to pursue ambitious missions, enable economic development through investments in the International Space Station, and create additional opportunities for the development of commercial infrastructure in low Earth orbit, cislunar, and beyond. We look forward to working alongside the incoming NASA leadership team as a trusted mission partner committed to advancing Artemis, including HLS and CLPS, expanding the economic development of low Earth orbit, and ensuring a sustainable future for humanity in space.”
