Aerospace Industry Vets Josh Brost, David Giger, Tim Buzza Join Relativity Executive Team

Former SpaceX senior leaders Josh Brost, David Giger and Tim Buzza have joined the executive team of satellite launch services provider Relativity.

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.
