Army and Navy Space Units To Transfer To Space Force Soon and Navy Space Units To Transfer To Space Force Soon2022-04-06T16:00:00Z Force No Explain.jpg, Force No Explain.jpg Force No Explain.jpg<div class="ExternalClass1EB57018435F460B80466D250B5BC3F4">The Space Force, DoD's newest service, stood up a couple years ago. The transfer of Air Force space units and personnel to the new service happened first, but soon Army and Navy space units and personnel will join them.

GAO Report On DoD Space Acquisitions Report On DoD Space Acquisitions2022-04-06T12:00:00Z Force No Explain.jpg, Force No Explain.jpg Force No Explain.jpg<div class="ExternalClassE9E758AC39024941AF0212EFD878EB50">GAO released a report today entitled, <a href="">"Space Acquisitions: Changing Environment Presents Continuing Challenges and Opportunities for DOD"</a>. The report provides status of individual space programs and GAO's assessment of several areas. GAO states in the introduction that:<br> <br> "The new acquisition process, the stand-up of the Space Force, the growth of the commercial space industry, and evolving threats in the space domain present challenges and opportunities for space acquisition efforts. <ul> <li>DOD has reported making progress establishing the Space Force, but it remains to be seen if this organizational change can address GAO’s 2016 concern that space acquisition leadership was fragmented.</li> <li>As DOD has reported, a new ecosystem of private companies offering capabilities such as space launch and satellite monitoring could create challenges in monitoring space objects, among other things, but could allow DOD to contract for data or services to meet some of its needs.</li> <li>For decades, space was largely a low-threat environment, but DOD has acknowledged that today, potential adversaries continue to develop offensive space capabilities, including weapons intended to target U.S. and allied capabilities.</li> </ul> GAO has reviews in progress that will cover several of the key topics noted above, such as DOD’s efforts to tailor the acquisition process, leverage commercial capabilities, and address new threats."<br> <br></div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/GAO-Report-On-DoD-Space-Acquisitions
Senior Leaders Urging Industry To Move Faster At This Week's Space Symposium Leaders Urging Industry To Move Faster At This Week's Space Symposium2022-04-06T12:00:00Z Force No Explain.jpg, Force No Explain.jpg Force No Explain.jpg<div class="ExternalClassF6DE2C0C061C4C3F9766410958F48FD2">The annual Space Symposium is happening this week in Colorado Springs and the top space leaders attend. According to an <a href="">Inside Edition article</a>, the Chief of Space Operations said, "Speed needs to be a greater priority for industry when developing and delivering space capabilities. We didn’t prioritize speed because we enjoyed a substantial lead in our science and technology. We didn’t prioritize visible resilience because we didn’t have challenges to our space capabilities . . . all of that has changed.”</div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/Senior-Leaders-Urging-Industry-To-Move-Faster-At-This-Week's-Space-Symposium-
White House Releases In-Space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing National Strategy House Releases In-Space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing National Strategy2022-04-06T12:00:00Z Force No Explain.jpg, Force No Explain.jpg Force No Explain.jpg<div class="ExternalClass76A8026905E44179A62F84F35B3EB2F0">The White House released the "<a href="">IN-SPACE SERVICING, ASSEMBLY, AND MANUFACTURING NATIONAL STRATEGY</a>" developed by the In-Space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing Interagency Working Group under the National Science and Technology Council. The In-Space Servicing Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM) Interagency Working Group coordinates science and technology policy, strategy, and federal research and development (R&D) pertaining to ISAM-related capabilities under the auspices of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). This coordinated effort aims to ensure that U.S. leadership in servicing, assembly, manufacturing capabilities in space and their applications is maintained and expanded for future use.<br> <br> 1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The United States is a pre-eminent leader in space exploration, development, and operations, spanning a broad spectrum of applications from remote sensing to navigation to satellite communications. The benefits of U.S. leadership have had a positive impact on its citizens and provided economic and security benefits. As we move toward increased reliance on space-based services, the growing complexity and aspiration of global space missions are at an inflection point. Sustained leadership requires continual adoption of new capabilities. The history of satellite servicing, refueling, assembly, and upgrade span from crewed servicing of telescopes, to in-space construction and maintenance of large structures, to autonomous robotic servicing missions. Recent commercial operations have extended the lifespan of satellites that are low on fuel. These novel and complex space activities are included within the In-space Servicing Assembly and Manufacturing (ISAM) set of capabilities, which support sustained economic activity and human presence in space. The United States will build on this foundation to accelerate a new, diverse, and market-focused ecosystem of autonomous persistent platforms and assets, to improve the way we use space for in-space and terrestrial operations. This National Strategy outlines how the United States will support and stimulate the United States Government (USG), academic, and commercial ISAM capability development. It provides strategic goals to advance ISAM capability development discussed in the United States Space Priorities Framework. The next step following the strategy is to develop USG implementation action plans to fulfill the goals. Six strategic goals build on existing investments and emerging capabilities, and chart a course for using a national approach to realize the opportunities enabled by ISAM. The six goals are: (1) advancing ISAM research and development; (2) prioritizing the expansion of scalable infrastructure; (3) accelerating the emerging ISAM commercial industry; (4) promoting international collaboration and cooperation to achieve ISAM goals; (5) prioritizing environmental sustainability as we move forward with ISAM capabilities; and (6) inspiring a diverse future workforce as a potential outcome of ISAM innovation. These six goals aim to guide the United States as it continues to develop ISAM capabilities. The goals address three challenges that need to be overcome in order to realize the benefits of ISAM capabilities: (1) improving coordination and collaboration both within the USG, as well as among the USG, academia, industry, and international partners; (2) sending a clear and consistent demand signal to private industry in order to stimulate investment, mitigate risk, and address investor confidence; and (3) establishing and adopting ISAM standards to help promote growth.</div>string;#/training/career-development/program-management/blog/White-House-Releases-In-Space-Servicing,-Assembly,-and-Manufacturing-National-Strategy
