Commercial Space Office’s Kniseley Keeps Focus on Industry Engagement


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Space Force has a new office tasked with helping the service better integrate commercial space capabilities across its portfolio.

The Commercial Space Office, led by Col. Richard Kniseley, will replace the Commercial Services Office, which was established just a year ago. The organization will bring together several other initiatives, including SpaceWERX — the service’s technology hub — and Space Systems Command’s Front Door, an online portal companies can use to connect with the acquisition community.
