Introducing the Northstar Campus
The Northstar Campus provides a neutral 501(c)3 eco-system where private industry, entrepreneurs, researchers, educators, and investors can meet and engage with the aerospace and defense stakeholders. By eliminating barriers between industry, academia, and government, Northstar aims to create community, spark innovation, share resources and knowledge, and stimulate business growth.
Secure, convenient, collaborative
Our secure facility provides controlled access to offices, meeting rooms, networking space, and labs. Our location, right outside Hanscom Air Force Base’s Vandenberg Gate in Lincoln, MA, enables beneficial off-base collaboration between the Air Force Program Executive Offices, the National Guard Joint Force Headquarters, Army Natick Soldier Systems Center, defense industry partners, and the region’s deep and vibrant innovation ecosystem.
