The site will entail 1,100 acres comprised of two sites deemed project ready within the Stennis Space Center fee area, and not in the buffer zone, Beckmeyer said.

In order for a site to be deemed project ready, Beckmeyer said it must meet all of the environmental and other pre qualification regulations. While there is no infrastructure at the site currently, a project ready site does include an estimated cost to build the site out.

Companies of interest to Stennis include those that would be a good fit for what the space engine testing facility currently does, including companies that specialize in unmanned systems, either in the air or water, or those that conduct academic research and development. Beckmeyer said that commercial space and aero space companies would also be a good fit.

An Industry Day will be held at the center to provide an overview and answer questions about the park. The deadline to register for the Industry Day is Friday, Jan. 12. To register for the day, send an email to Timothy.I.Pierce@nasa.gov, with the name of the entity including the name of the organization, address and primary point of contact, statement of interest, name and citizenship of the person attending and a list of information or questions the person is interested in acquiring.
