Relativity said Thursday it named Brost as vice president of government business development; David Giger as VP of launch vehicle development for the company’s Terran 1 rocket; and Tim Buzza as distinguished engineer.
The appointments came after Relativity received a Statement of Capability in January to conduct operations at its rocket launch facility at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
The company also secured a patent for its 3D metal printing technology that uses machine learning, advanced sensors and control software.
At SpaceX, Brost helped the aerospace firm pursue $3B in government and commercial contracts while Giger led the development of its Cargo Dragon and Crew Dragon spacecraft.
Buzza previously served as an adviser at Relativity and held co-president and VP roles at Virgin Orbit.
Relativity aims to commence a full orbital launch by the end of 2020.
