Since its creation just four months ago, the U.S. Space Force has been working to define its priorities, capabilities and culture. As planning continues to stand up new organizations and recruit talent, one key effort has been the development of an acquisition strategy to build the next generation of military space systems.
Questions explored in this webinar:
- What are the Space Force’s next steps in its organization?
- What has been the impact of COVID-19 on Space Force planning and operations?
- What are the Space Force’s proposals to change the acquisition system?
- What personnel, resource and budget challenges does the Space Force face going forward?
- With growing threats in space, what does the Space Force have to do to build more resilient and defendable space systems?
