KODIAK- Things are looking up for the Alaska Aerospace Corp.
The Kodiak Launch Complex has one launch scheduled next year, and it's pursuing three more in future years.
The announcement was made at the state-owned corporation's board meeting in Anchorage.
Corporation Chief Operations Officer Mark Greby declined to say which companies have expressed interest in launching from Kodiak's Narrow Cape spaceport. The board went into executive session to discuss the details.
CEO Craig Campbell says not all contracts being pursued are launches of government rockets. They also include drone flights and monitoring launches from other spaceports.
