The Air Force Research Laboratory’s space vehicles directorate has chosen eight companies to participate in its collaborative Catalyst Space Accelerator program, which seeks to rapidly develop commercial technologies for space intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations.

According to a Catalyst press release published Monday, its fourth cohort will have eight companies as members: Capella Space, Chandah Space Technologies, ExoTerra Imaging, HyperVerge, Kleos, MemComputing, Rhea Space Activity and Space-Eyes.

The cohort, which will be active for 11 weeks, will commence activities on Sept. 10. Every other week, the participants will convene at Catalyst Campus in Colorado to meet with potential clients, join workshops and secure seed investment from Space Capital Colorado.
