Marketing Distinction

The Space program has captured the imagination of the world since its inception. Many of the technologies developed to get is “out there” have come home to improve life on Earth. The Space Certification program awards a “seal of approval” to companies and products that can demonstrate a viable link to the space program. Licensed use of the seal allows you to tie your business to the excitement of space on products, packaging, and literature while reminding the public of how space benefits life on Earth. Certified partners benefit from the space connection and the credibility of the Space Foundation, while helping fulfill its mission to advance and support space endeavors.


Types of Certification

The space certification program highlights companies and products in three distinct areas: technology, education, and entertainment. Companies can apply for certification in any or all of these areas, as is applicable to its product(s). 


Certified Space Technology a product or service that directly results from Space technology or space program development such that the product exists because of advances in space technology.

Certified Space Data Product products and/or services that use data collected from space systems, or that provide data about space and the space industry.

Certified Educational Product a product used in educational environments to stimulate interest and knowledge about Space. Education is key to the mission of the Space Foundation and supporting these products inspires each new generation.

Become A Certified Partner

To become a certified partner, a company first applies, designating which certification classification is most appropriate for its product(s). All information provided in the application is kept strictly confidential. The Space Foundation carefully reviews the application for a genuine space connection. Upon approval for certification, a license agreement is made between the company and Space Foundation, which grants the company rights to use the certification seal on products, in literature, and on packaging for a designated period of time.


Benefits to Certified Partners

The Certification Seal is an important marketing credential for companies trying to establish an identity and a competitive advantage. Earned by companies that utilize the technology or educational elements associated with our space programs, the Seal is a statement that speaks volumes to potential customers and has been compared to the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” for the space industry.


The Space Foundation actively works to support the marketing efforts of each certified partner and tailor support that will enhance the company and product. Certified partners benefit from the high visibility of the Space Foundation, its participation in the space industry, and its influence in the public, government, military, and space sectors.  Products with the seal prominently displayed benefit from the synergy of millions of space messages delivered each year.
