WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue University has joined a select group of space community leaders for a Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center.

The center is housed in Colorado. Aeronautics and Astronautics Professor Dan DeLaurentis will serve on the board of directors for the center.

The center will allow academic contribution to industry leaders such as government agencies. The goal is to share information regarding cyber and non-cyber threats.

They'll share information at board meetings and conventions. DeLaurentis said this is a great partnership for Purdue University. 

"The future I think is gonna be much more of a space based economy," said  DeLaurentis. "People and systems will be doing much more in space. Both for our economic activity as I said as well as our military, national security and defense needs."

Purdue is the first and currently the only university asked to join this partnership. There are plans to add another university to the team of space experts.
