Act Restores President’s Authority to Approve Satellite Exports

AIAA applauds the satellite export control language contained in the FY 2013 National Defense Authorization Act passed last week by Congress, which restores the President’s authority to approve the export of satellite technology.

“AIAA applauds the new satellite export control language contained within the FY 2013 National Defense Authorization Act. By moving satellite export control back to the Department of Commerce’s Commerce Control List, the bill reforms key barriers hampering development of the satellite industry in the United Sates, and imperiling our community’s competitiveness in the world marketplace,” said AIAA executive director Sandra H. Magnus.
