Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corp. has built a new manufacturing center for building satellites under contracts from NASA and the Defense Department.

The company said it completed a 90,000-square-foot expansion project at its integration facility in Boulder, Colo., finishing work that started in 2005.

This expansion complements another expansion project in Westminster, Colo. that finished in 2011, the company said.

Boulder’s expanded facilities will work on contracts for NASA’s Joint Polar Satellite System, DigitalGlobe’s WorldView-3 remote-sensing satellite, the B612 Foundation’s Sentinel Mission and several Defense Department and national security missions.

“The expansion we proudly unveil today also affirms our commitment to growing Colorado’s dynamic aerospace economy,” said David Taylor, president and CEO.

Ball Aerospace said the expanded aerospace manufacturing complex in Boulder includes 60 percent more cleanroom space, new environmental testing systems and added build-out capacity for a larger thermal vacuum chamber, used to test spacecraft.
