Our space industrial base designs, develops, produces and supports our spacecraft, satellites, launch systems and supporting infrastructure. Systems are often produced in small, even single, numbers. Cancellations impact large companies and can be catastrophic to smaller firms — often the only entities producing critical components on which we depend. This industrial base also drives technological development that commonly occurs with the design and production of next-generation systems.
The space industrial base is a vital resource for our nation’s well-Being and must be properly prioritized and supported by the Administration and Congress.
