The People of NewSpace: Douglas Loverro — The Interaction of Commercial Space Desires and Defense Space Needs

The sixth of thirty-six reasons to attend ISPCS. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy Doug Loverro notes from the earliest days of the space age, till the turn of the last millennium, space was dominated by government investment and activity, especially related to defense. Today, particularly in the U.S., Space is dominated by commercial and entrepreneurial forces all seeking to exploit the global commons that space represents. As other nations seek to posture themselves to use space for national security, and as the US faces new challenges to its uncontested use of space for warfighting, Loverro explores how the US can best reconcile and leverage the opportunities and challenges that commercial space flight bring.
