Thursday, April 23, 2020

SWF Director of Program Planning Dr. Brian Weeden took part in a webinar "Space Force Gets Down to Business" organized by SpaceNews to discuss the current status of the U.S. Space Force and where it is headed over the next year. The webinar started with a discussion with LtGen David Thompson, Vice Commander of the U.S. Space Force, and then proceeded to a panel discussion. Dr. Weeden was joined on the panel by Mr. Todd Harrison and Ms. Kaitlyn Johnson from the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Mr. JV Venable from the Heritage Foundation, and retired Col. Bill Woolf from the Space Force Association. The panelists discussed what hurdles the Space Force faces as it continues to evolve, including reforming acquisitions and building the appropriate culture, and what they see happening over the next few years of the process.
