On February 10, the Space Enterprise Council and the George Marshall Institute co-hosted a forum focused on the role of commercial and international space capabilities in meeting U.S. national security space missions. Many factors have contributed to the expanding use of commercial and allied space assets by the U.S. military. The February 10 forum discussed the benefits and potential drawbacks of the increasing integration of space capabilities.

Panelists discussed those space capabilities that should NOT be outsourced, whether there should be limits on those capabilities that are provided by non-U.S. government sources, and factors that will influence greater cooperation with allies.

Introductory remarks were delivered by Rosie Rosenberg, retired Air Force Major General, author of the Carter Administration space policy, and former GM SAIC. The panelists were Steven Huybrechts, former Director, Space Programs and Policy at Department of Defense; Andrea Maleter, Technical Director of Futron Corporation; and Peter Marquez, former Director for Space Policy at the National Security Council and a Fellow of the Marshall Institute.
