    Since the early 1950s,

    Huntsville has been

    a national center for

    space and defense

    technology. Known

    as Rocket City USA,

    we have built on the

    legacy of the Saturn V,

    through the Shuttle

    era, and are leading

    development of

    NASAs Space Launch

    System today.

    Huntsville and

    Redstone Arsenal

    are the location of

    choice for the best and

    brightest engineers

    and scientists, and

    we have been

    nationally recognized

    by Inc., Forbes, and

    The Wall Street

    Journal as one of

    Americas leading

    tech communities.

    Our local and state

    leaders foster

    business success by

    providing a dynamic

    education system, a

    high quality of life,

    a low cost of living

    and doing business,

    and the infrastructure

    necessary for growth.

    With the highest

    concentration of

    engineers and tech

    workers in the country,

    the Huntsville region

    is a smart place to live,

    learn, work, and play.
