Stennis International Airport
Charting a global future? Directions here.
To get the best bearings in a fast-moving global market, follow the leaders with the best direction. Companies like Optech, the world leader in the development and manufacture of advanced lidar (light detecting through lasers) and camera survey instruments for airborne, mobile and terrestrial mapping.
At Stennis International Airpark, Optech enjoys all the labor and logistical advantages to map out and maintain the company’s expanding global success. And the well-resourced Airpark is also home to the Joint Airborne Lidar Bathymetry Technical Center of Expertise (JALBTCX), which supports the coastal mapping and charting of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the U.S. Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
In fact, it’s no exaggeration to say that at Stennis International Airpark, global operations know where they are going—and know they are going farther, faster.
A laser focus on quality and growth. Geospatial technologies are only one of the developing clusters at the Airpark, where a depth of resources and support allows companies across a broad spectrum to train a laser focus on quality and growth. The result is diverse success, from Selex Galileo, the U.S. Defense Department’s go-to supplier of radar and other aerospace electronics; to Koenig Stainless, a leading international supplier of custom stainless steel; to the Lazy Magnolia Brewery, Mississippi’s oldest packaging brewery supplying refreshing beer products to Southern and Midwestern markets.
Abundant acreage, expansive service: Spreading out over 1,800 contiguous acres, the Airpark offers ample room for expansion, even as a location adjacent to the Stennis International Airport assures an abundance of 24/7 convenience in air travel. The Airport’s lighted and grooved 8,500-ft. runway is equipped to handle the world’s largest aircraft, while non-stop, all-weather service is supported by a well-equipped air traffic control tower, Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS-3), UNICOM communications, and ILS with medium intensity approach.
Aviation that makes flyers feel like a million: The Airport’s Million Air fixed base operator (FBO) offers a full complement of capabilities and amenities, including comfortably appointed lounge, aircraft fueling, air charter, hangar space and tie down.
Strategic market access and ease: Easy access to Mississippi Highway 603 and I-10 enhances market reach, while an FTZ designation provides additional options for streamlined and cost-effective transit and shipping.
Strategic site opportunities: Owned and operated by the Hancock County Port and Harbor Commission, the Airpark offers multiple site opportunities for domestic and/or foreign direct investment. As an international point of entry to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and home of the Stennis Space Center, Hancock County welcomes non-domestic partnerships with expertise and high-value incentives.
