New Report On State Of Space Industrial Base Report On State Of Space Industrial Base2020-07-30T16:00:00Z Force No Explain.jpg, Force No Explain.jpg Force No Explain.jpg<div class="ExternalClassD6ED64A790314F8C8856E516C1ABF699">The Air Force Research Laboratory, Defense Innovation Unit, and the Space Force teamed up to author a report, <a href="">"State of the Space Industrial Base 2020, A Time for Action to Sustain US Economic & Military Leadership in Space".</a><br> <br> In the Foreword, Gen Raymond (Chief of Space Operations) states, "The advantage America enjoys today stems from our space industrial base. We must work together to ensure that it remains a strong, effective, and innovative partner in sustaining American space superiority. The 2020 Defense Space Strategy recognizes that commercial space activities have expanded significantly in both volume and diversity. The Space Force must leverage the technologies and approaches at the frontier of this commercial expansion and move quickly to both reap the benefits of improving capability and affordability, and to be an enabling partner for American industry. By working with commercial partners, we will harness the best of both civil and government technology to further accelerate capabilities and expand the overall space economy."<br> <br> The report looks at six areas most vital to US national power in space:<br> <br> 1) Space policy and finance tools to secure US space leadership now and into the future by building a unity-of-effort within the government and incentivizing the space industrial base.<br> <br> 2) Space information services including space communications/internet, PNT, and the full range of Earth observing functions which have commercial, civil and military applications.<br> <br> 3) Space transportation and logistics to, in and from cislunar space and beyond.<br> <br> 4) Human presence in space for exploration, space tourism, space manufacturing and resource extraction.<br> <br> 5) Power for space systems to enable the full range of emerging space applications<br> <br> 6) Space manufacturing and resource extraction for terrestrial and in space markets.</div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/New-Report-On-State-Of-Space-Industrial-Base

This timely, first-ever DoD online learning asset on the complex topic of IP valuation is an important tool to educate the DoD acquisition workforce on IP valuation and associated factors. Understanding the basic concepts of IP valuation is critical to developing an IP Strategy in order to acquire IP deliverables with appropriate licensing rights over the product’s life cycle, at a reasonable cost to the Government.<br> <br> This module was created because of requirements in DoDI 5010.44, Intellectual Property (IP) Acquisition and Licensing. This DoDI requires DoD Components to improve the quality and consistency of financial analysis and valuation practices for determining fair and reasonable prices and appropriate needs for IP and IP rights in order to develop program budgets and evaluate proposals. CLM 002 is DAU’s first online module specifically dedicated to this complex subject and will be supplemented with additional educational resources in the future.<br> <br> Highlights of the module include: <ul> <li>3 Lessons with introductory videos: Introduction to IP, Common Commercial IP Valuation Approaches and IP Valuation in the Acquisition Life Cycle</li> <li>A summary of the key concepts and critical questions for acquisition professionals to consider</li> <li>Useful tools, including a Quick Reference card (aka “job aid”) and links to relevant websites on IP</li> </ul> Completing the module will assist users in answering the following questions: <ul> <li>Why do we care about intellectual property valuation?</li> </ul> <ul> <li>What licensing rights does the Government acquire in IP?</li> <li>How do contractors value their IP?</li> <li>When do IP valuations take place in the Acquisition Life Cycle?</li> <li>Why is an IP Strategy essential to your program’s success?</li> </ul> To access the module, click on the following link:<br> <a href=""></a><br></div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/New-Intellectual-Property-Valuation-Module-Deployed!
New Defense Space Strategy Defense Space Strategy2020-07-06T16:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClassD60F1A717D0E4E5EA4FA9178FA3FF4A7">The new Defense Space Strategy identifies how Department of Defense will advance spacepower to be able to compete, deter, and win in a complex security environment characterized by great power competition. According to Secretary of Defense, Mark T. Esper. “This strategy identifies a phased approach on how we are going to achieve the desired conditions in space over the next 10 years.” Through the strategy, DoD will advance spacepower through the pursuit of three objectives: Maintain Space Superiority; Provide Space Support to National, Joint, and Combined Operations; and Ensure Space Stability.<br> <br> Additionally, the Department will pursue four priority lines of effort to achieve the desired conditions while addressing identified threats, opportunities, and challenges:<br> 1) Build a comprehensive military advantage in space.<br> 2) Integrate military spacepower into national, joint, and combined operations.<br> 3) Shape the strategic environment.<br> 4) Cooperate with allies, partners, industry, and other U.S. Government departments and agencies.<br> <br> New leadership and management for space acquisition has been established to unify the Department’s space acquisition efforts into a streamlined structure for better integration and speed of delivery. A new Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Space Acquisition and Integration ASAF(A&I), along with a new Space Force Acquisition Council (SFAC), will simplify the leadership and synchronization of the DoD’s space development efforts by overseeing and directing: the Space Development Agency, the Space and Missile Systems Center, and the Space Rapid Capabilities Office. When the transfer of the Space Development Agency is completed, the Department will have a new unified structure. <br> <br> The unclassified summary of the Defense Space Strategy is available <a href="">here</a>.</div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/New-Defense-Space-Strategy
