MIDLAND - New equipment is in the works for XCOR Aerospace.

The company will be receiving a rocket engine test stand.

The Midland City Council approved amending an Economic Development agreement with XCOR to provide funding for it.

Up to $200,000 will be coming from the midland development corporation for the project.

Officials say the test stand will be the airport's property but part of XCOR's lease.

It'll be used as part of the research and development operations of the spaceport.
