Officials from the Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and NASA will host an Industry Day meeting next month that will provide women-owned small businesses an opportunity to meet with decision-makers regarding doing business with the agencies. NASA announced the event on Tuesday.

The Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Industry Day event, hosted by the Dryden Flight Research Center (DFRC) and the SMC at Los Angeles Air Force Base, is an opportunity for companies to meet with decision-makers regarding doing business with the agencies. "The targeted audience for this event are WOSB companies; however, all small businesses may register to attend," NASA said in the meeting announcement.

The event will be held on March 4 at Gordon Conference Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, Calif.

Attendees will hear from SMC commander, DFRC senior management, small business program managers/specialists from NASA Headquarters and all centers, small business technical coordinators, the SMC chief scientist, prime contractor representatives and others. One-on-one matchmaking appointments with NASA and SMC small business specialists, other federal agencies, and prime contractors will be offered.

The vision of the NASA Small Business Program is to promote and integrate all small businesses into the competitive base of contractors that pioneer the future of space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research.

SMC designs and acquires all Air Force and most Department of Defense space systems. It oversees launches, completes on-orbit checkouts and then turns the system over to the user agency. SMC is a subordinate unit of the Air Force Space Command.
