Over the past 50 years, space systems and technologies have increasingly become a critical part of our nation’s economic, scientific and national security capabilities. Without space systems, U.S. military forces have reduced operational effectiveness, policymakers cannot make informed decisions about the nation’s security and economy and civil financial and communications capabilities are degraded or disrupted. Our space capabilities are a source of national pride and an investment in the science and R&D needed to maintain U.S. global competitiveness.
AIA’s Space Council represents the nation’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of civil, national security, and commercial space systems, related components, and technology. The Association dates back to the birth of flight in 1919, and its space roots can be traced back to the dawn of the Space Age in the 1950s and 60s.
The Council is the most authoritative voice for industry within the halls of Congress, NASA, the Department of Defense and other agencies. View a sample of our meetings and events with senior government space and defense policy leaders.
