Constellations - Explore Space Network Technologies with Industry Leaders

Mar 5, 2018

Hear Doug Loverro, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy, share his thoughts on current space policy and the clear need for international agreements and regulation to turn space into an economic reality. Doug discusses space situational awareness and the essential requirement to know where things are and where they are going in order to avoid space collisions that would be catastrophic. He makes an analogy to unregulated city traffic in the 1900’s where the lack of traffic rules clearly enabled chaos and collisions. Space is a vast wilderness with plenty of economic potential, however many companies will not exercise their economic destiny until rules and a clear infrastructure, like traffic signals, are put into place.
