What’s Next for DoD Space?
Date of Event:
March 12th, 2014
16:45 - 17:45
The Department of Defense’s space programs and policies are at a crossroads, with existing military satellite procurement programs nearing the end of their delivery cycles, and numerous studies and new procurement models under internal consideration. This panel will attempt to answer the big question: what’s next for DoD space? What lessons is the Department learning from the current generation of satellite programs and budgetary pressures? Are new procurement models – including long-term leases of commercial satellite bandwidth or hosted payloads – likely to expand, or will a new generation of large military satellites be developed?
