A Sneak Peek Inside Biden/Harris Space Plans?
The Advanced Space Architectures Program (ASAP): Championing American Innovation through
Next Generation In-Space Operations, Day One Project
“The Biden-Harris administration should launch a new Advanced Space Architectures Program (ASAP) to enable a new generation of in-space operations that will renew American leadership in space operations of all kinds. ASAP would improve the cost-effectiveness, productivity, and resiliency of our space systems through a series of inter-related missions. The program would operate through a public-private consortium in order to effectively leverage direct government investment while facilitating the space economy through a healthy space industrial base and a variety of partnerships. On the federal side, ASAP should be jointly led by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Department of Defense (DOD, including the Space Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU)). Additional federal support would come from agencies such as the Department of Commerce (DOC, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)) and the Department of Transportation (DOT, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)).”
