Space Systems

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.
