Join us on Wednesday, December 11, for WSBR's Upcoming Luncheon:

NASA Communications Services Program

Deadline to Register is Wednesday, December 4th

11:30 am - 1:30 pm

U.S. national space policy requires federal agencies such as NASA to “purchase and use commercial space capabilities and services to the maximum practical extent when such capabilities and services are available in the marketplace and meet United States Government requirements.” It also requires agencies to “pursue potential opportunities for transferring routine, operational space functions to the commercial space sector where beneficial and cost-effective.”

NASA is implementing this policy through a new program, the Communications Services Program (CSP), led by the Commercial Spaceflight Development Division at NASA Headquarters. CPS will work with the commercial market to identify requirements and explore opportunities that are mutually beneficial to NASA and industry, and will develop an acquisition model for incorporating commercial communications services into NASA’s operations. Mr. Phil McAlister, NASA’s Director of the Commercial Spaceflight Development Division, will discuss NASA’s initial plans to achieve commercially provided satcom services.

Keynote Speaker: 

Phillip McAlister

Director of the Commercial Spaceflight Division
