The National Security Space Association today issued a report outlining various steps the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community should take to more effectively leverage commercial space capabilities in support of U.S. national security.  According to Chris Williams, Chair of the Association’s Moorman Center for Space Studies, “This detailed report represents the single, most comprehensive analysis of and set of recommendations on how commercial space capabilities can be leveraged to enhance U.S. national security.  It is chock-full of actionable recommendations for consideration by the Biden administration and the Congress.  It provides the missing framework for considering where and how commercial space capabilities should be applied to enhance U.S. national security.  Given the increasing breadth and sophistication of commercial space capabilities and the expanding threats to U.S. national security space systems from China and Russia, the time for action is now.”
