Current Issues and Approaches for Industry and Government
This virtual event explores some of the decadal – if not generational – questions facing the Nation’s space enterprise.  Years of planning and preparation culminated in the creation of the US Space Force in December 2019; however, much work remains to achieve the vision articulated in the 2020 Defense Space Strategy.  As the US Space Force matures its strategy, operational concepts, and acquisition plans -- with a new administration and significant pending budget decisions as context -- the day will focus on four areas that underpin future US space advances in support of the strategy:  a view of the threat environment; perspectives from current space leaders in government and industry; the future use of commercial services and capabilities to augment, offset, or replace government-owned and-operated space capabilities; and, the state of space-related acquisition reform.
