Outer space activities are more important to the United States now than at almost any time in our history. The rapid growth in new actors conducting space activities, an increasing number of active satellites and debris objects, and the growing potential for conflict create both opportunities and challenges that require timely policy responses from the incoming administration. 

As the Biden administration begins setting its policy agenda for the next four years, Secure World Foundation is releasing today an issue briefing to provide background and recommendations on key space policy and sustainability issues to help the U.S. meet current and emerging challenges in outer space. 

This brief contains recommendations on issues ranging from fostering a vibrant commercial space sector to dealing with threats from counterspace capabilities. An Executive Summary can be downloaded here.
