U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao has appointed SES Government Solutions (SES GS) Senior Director of Business Development Paul Damphousse to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Commercial Space Transportation Advisory Committee (COMSTAC), SES announced today. The COMSTAC provides executive-level observations, findings, and recommendations to the FAA administrator regarding critical issues within the commercial space industry.

Damphousse will serve as a senior industry representative and member of COMSTAC on behalf of SES GS, and will advise the government during bi-annual COMSTAC meetings and through participation on the COMSTAC working groups.

“Seismic shifts are occurring within the commercial space sector, including changes in how non-traditional space activities are regulated. Spacecraft servicing, space traffic management, and hosted payloads are a few of these activities,” said Damphousse. “My goal is to ensure that the U.S. government is fully informed from a commercial space perspective regarding new consensus standards and regulatory decisions.”
