Rep. Adam smith visits BlackSky

Rep. Adam Smith

We were proud to host Rep. Adam Smith of Washington’s 9th District at our Seattle office. Besides representing his community’s interests in Washington, Rep. Smith is the senior Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.

House Armed Services Committee

He has served in the House of Representatives for over 20 years and is a very strong advocate for both Seattle and small companies in the defense and aerospace sectors. He spent time with Spaceflight Industries CEO and President Jason Andrews, who gave him an overview of BlackSky’s mission, and Rep. Smith took the time to discuss the role of private industry in working with governmental agencies.

We are strong believers in the benefits of industry and government working together to access space in the most efficient and cost-effective way. Thank you Rep. Smith for visiting!
