The Space & Missile Systems Center (SMC) is the birthplace of military space and center of military space acquisition excellence. Its mission is to deliver resilient and affordable space capabilities for the nation. SMC designs and acquires all Air Force and most DoD 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.

In support of small businesses, the White House has requested that all Federal agencies focus outreach efforts in small business socioeconomic categories where agency goal performance is low. To meet this request, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014-15 NASA Small Business Improvement Plan, instituted an initiative focused on increasing outreach in the following low performing socioeconomic areas: Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned, Women-Owned, and Historically Underutilized Business Zones. SMC has undertaken a similar DoD initiative.
