How Much Change Has There Really Been in National Security Space Policy?

Wednesday, April 7, 2021

SWF Director of Program Planning Dr. Brian Weeden gave an invited lecture to the Space Control Applications Group at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab where he discussed current trends in U.S. national security space policy. Dr. Weeden began with a list of important national security space policy questions and that summarized the last ten years of policy and organizational changes within the U.S. to try and answer those questions. In the end, he concluded that while there has been a lot of discussion and churns, we have not made as much progress answering those questions as expected and today's national security space policies are similar to those of a decade ago. Dr. Weeden's presentation can be found here.
