COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. This fall, eight companies from around the country will convene in Colorado Springs for the Catalyst Space Accelerator’s (CSA) fourth cohort, centered around space-based Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR).

For this cohort, the U.S. Air Force is seeking to encourage commercially viable solutions for its space-based ISR needs. Because of its co-location in Colorado Springs with Air Force Space Command and several military bases, the CSA provides intersection of government entities and commercial expertise.

Starting on September 10, the cohort of companies will meet at Catalyst Campus every other week for 11 weeks. They will participate in workshops, work with government and commercial Sherpas, have access to the campus’ extensive collaborative ecosystem, and receive seed investment by Space Capital Colorado.

The eight small businesses to participate in the space-based ISR cohort are: Capella Space, Chandah Space Technologies, ExoTerra Imaging, HyperVerge Inc., Kleos, MemComputing, Rhea Space Activity, and Space-Eyes.
