Terran Orbital has selected Merritt Island for the construction of its Commercial Spacecraft and Constellation Facility.

The company will bring spacecraft manufacturing opportunities and capabilities to the State of Florida by investing more than $300 million in new construction and equipment.

This will be the largest satellite manufacturing facility in the world.

The approximately 660,000 sq. ft., custom designed facility will enable Terran Orbital to manufacture the entire small satellite life cycle.

Located at the LLF on the east side of the runway, the new campus will provide space vehicle assembly; printed circuit board assembly manufacturing; CNC machining and additive manufacturing; space vehicle module, subsystems, and electro-mechanical assembly; harness and cabling production; and qualification and acceptance testing. The three-building development will also include administrative and office space.

“Satellite manufacturing is and will continue to be an important part of the economy in the Space Coast, and with this announcement we are upping the ante. In Florida we are going to continue to take the lead on space by investing in infrastructure, training highly skilled workers and maintaining an economic climate that allows companies like Terran Orbital to thrive. I congratulate them on a great decision to come to Florida,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in a statement.
