The Defense Budget Crunch: The Impact on the Satellite Industry

Date of Event:
March 11th, 2014

Run Time:
13:30 - 14:45

Room Number:
207A

Track:
Military Forum




As a major customer of U.S. spacecraft, services and equipment, changes in U.S. federal government spending have a different market impact for each satellite industry segment. Though sequestration was presented as a blanket cut across the federal government, different agencies have in practice applied ongoing cuts required by sequestration in varying ways. This panel will discuss how industry and government partners have responded to budget cutbacks and what lies ahead for U.S. government markets. With sequestration in place for more than a year, what lessons can be drawn about its impact on the satellite industry? What should suppliers to the U.S. government markets look for as indicators of spending and demand – and national security space priorities – in the years ahead?
