The New Space Race

2015 marked an inflection point in the history of commercial space. The significant accomplishments in reusable launch vehicles, the explosion of small satellite technology and the passing of the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act all contributed to this historic year — and SpaceCom was there.

In 2016, we saw extraordinary achievements in re-launch capabilities that will reduce costs and continue to lower the barriers to entry for many companies worldwide. This trend continues into 2017. The commercial space market is booming with the entry of privately-funded companies. Non-aerospace companies are seeing bottom-line benefits from new space technologies and capabilities. In addition, opportunities to develop partnerships across the aerospace eco-system are emerging and expanding.
