Space Transportation Association is dedicated to supporting policies that advance robust, affordable space transportation for NASA, DoD, and commercial markets. STA events aim to education and update policy makers, industry representatives and Federal government employees on the latest issues in the space community. The Association's corporate members are launch manufacturers and launch service providers.
STA has several ways its members are able to share views with Government policy makers:
- STA Breakfast & Lunch Series
- STA Receptions
- STA Small Group Meetings
- STA visits to NASA and DoD centers
- Coalition for Space Exploration support
STA was founded in 1989 by LTG Dan Graham (US Army, ret.), MG Milnor Roberts (US Army, ret.), and BG Bob Richardson (US Air Force, ret.), with the objective of expanding reliable access to Space for military, civilian, and commercial purposes.
