Space Launch

Command and Control Technologies Corporation (CCT) was founded in 1997 as a spaceport technology company specializing in launch control and range safety automation. CCT has built a reputation as an organization that can deliver highly automated systems that advance the state of the art in space technology. CCT was originally founded to assist companies entering the fledgling commercial space marketplace. These companies required systems that did not inherit the costly and complicated approaches taken by the government ranges and large launch vehicle developers. CCT built a product line and engineering staff committed to challenging the status quo in the launch industry by providing an optimized combination of custom and off the shelf solutions for mission IT applications.
