The Aerospace Special Interest Group (SIG) is a Technical Excellence Program of NSBE. Established in 2005, the Aerospace SIG is a network of NSBE members either working in or interested in the US space industry. The Aerospace SIG seeks to serve as a conduit between the aerospace industry and the Black community, fulfilling the dual role of stimulating increased contributions of African Americans to the aerospace industry and encouraging more African American youth to consider careers across the industry, especially in space. Aerospace SIG members volunteer their time to develop space technologies, organize space-related conferences, and conduct youth outreach. Each member is asked to volunteer roughly 2-5 hours per week in the pursuit of these initiatives. The Aerospace SIG has a reputation as NSBE's most active SIG and it and its members have won numerous awards for technology advancement, industry leadership, and overall technical excellence.
