Commercial Space and National Security: Defining Successful Partnerships
America’s domination in Space has allowed unimpeded overmatch in the areas of communications, position, navigation, and tracking; and ISR.  This domain superiority has been facilitated by public entities whose R&D, capability development, and innovation have served as catalysts for enhanced satisfaction of Space related missions.  Other nations, however, are challenging U.S. superiority and greater public-partner partnerships are needed to thwart threats.  The panel will take a look at how that partnership can be improved, what policy issues are emerging from the Executive Branch, where the government needs greater public sector assistance, and what are the pros and cons of greater private sector support.
