The  Washington Post reports that as the White House promotes its push to create a “Space Force as a sixth military branch and the first new service since the Air Force was created in 1947, a group of government contractors sees a chance to profit.” According to Capital Alpha Partners analyst Byron Callan, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Harris Corporation in particular may benefit from the Space Force. Lexington Institute consultant Loren Thompson adds that because the new branch “will be a smaller service with fewer resources, it may be more dependent on industry for technical advice and policy input.”(Image Credit: USAF
