We have made an important decision at Redwire Space that I believe will enable us to serve our customers, partners, and the space industry at large in a more robust and enduring way. Today, we announced we are entering into a definitive merger with Genesis Park Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: GNPK) (Genesis Park), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, that will result in Redwire becoming a publicly traded company. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2021, and at that time, Genesis Park will change its name to Redwire and we will trade on the NYSE.
At Redwire, we build above. Whether we are supporting national security, civil, or commercial space missions through our essential spacecraft components, contributing to a growing low Earth economy through innovative product development on the International Space Station, or revolutionizing spacecraft architecture through robotic manufacturing and assembly on orbit, we are providing tools that will unlock the next golden age of space exploration. Through this merger announcement, Redwire will scale its innovation ecosystem, further solidifying our position as the mission partner of choice and accelerating development of the next generation of space infrastructure.
We believe the future of space exploration will be defined by transformational technologies that enable new capabilities on orbit, open new markets for economic expansion, and provide a sustainable future for humanity beyond low Earth orbit. Over the last year, Redwire has aligned the talent and technology necessary to deliver on our missionaccelerating humanitys expansion in spacein unprecedented ways.
