    The Evolving Landscape of the Space Business

    Plenary Panel

    The Evolving Landscape of the Space Business


    Tuesday, 10 September 2013 – 1330–1500 hrs, Ballroom 20A

    Budget outlooks, contracting methodologies, funding approaches, partnering philosophies, and mission architectures are altering the dynamics of how space leaders work together to achieve goals. New and novel approaches to manufacturing, testing, and operation of space systems are challenging traditional views of time to market, affordability, and risk acceptance. What is being done differently and what can we learn? Are there leadership lessons that are applicable to sustaining a space strategy?
