Commercial Spaceflight Federation

Sovaris Aerospace is a member of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF).  As one of only a small number of CSF members devoted to space flight medicine and medically-based countermeasures, Sovaris has an important role within the CSF in supporting development of a strong human factors conceptual framework.  As one of the only CSF members focused on personalized medicine applied to human space flight, Sovaris is working hard to bring individualized human factors methods to the industry, along with an initiative for comprehensive molecular profiling.   Sovaris is also engaged with the CSF/FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) collaboration to develop health and safety recommendations for the commercial spaceflight industry.

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation is the leading voice for the commercial spaceflight industry. Founded in 2006, CSF and its 70+ members are laying the foundation for a sustainable space economy and democratizing access to space for scientists, students, civilians, and businesses. CSF members are responsible for the creation of thousands of high-tech jobs driven by billions of dollars in investment. Through the promotion of technology innovation, CSF is guiding the expansion of Earth’s economic sphere, bolstering U.S. leadership in aerospace, and inspiring America’s next generation of engineers and explorers.

The Commercial Spaceflight Federation is a private spaceflight industry group, incorporated as an industry association for the purposes of establishing ever higher levels of safety for the commercial human spaceflight industry, sharing best practices and expertise, and promoting the growth of the industry worldwide. Issues that the Commercial Spaceflight Federation work on include, but are not limited to, the STIM-Grants program for spaceport infrastructure, FAA regulations and permits, industry safety standards, public outreach, and public advocacy for the commercial space sector.  Also included with the CSF is the Suborbital Applications Researchers Group (SARG), composed of scientists and researchers dedicated to furthering the scientific potential of suborbital reusable launch vehicles under development by the commercial spaceflight sector.
