About Us

About VSDC

We’re a multi-institutional collaborative effort led by Old Dominion University and Virginia Tech,supported by the Virginia Research Innovation Fund (VRIF). In concert with our partners and affiliates we build data solutions and initiatives that will grow Virginia’s economy and improve the lives of everyday Virginians.

Our Mission

 

The Virginia Small Satellite Data Consortium (VSDC) creates and delivers accessible and collaborative tools to increase the value and impact of data-driven problem solving for societal benefit. By solidifying an ethic of data-based sharing, and by integrating with the diverse communities we serve, we can grow data-ready workforces and position Virginia-based businesses and stakeholders as real players in national and global data markets.

 

We promote collaboration between research organizations and industry, support new business ventures, encourage the shared use of facilities, and accelerate the development of centers-of-excellence throughout the Commonwealth to capitalize on actionable data that makes a difference.
