The Air Force wants input from industry about its ongoing National Security Space Launch Assessment.   But hurry!  Comments are due in three weeks.

Specifically, the Deputy Under Secretary of the Air Force for Space is seeking "views and perspectives to inform an ongoing strategic National Security Space Launch Assessment" by getting answers to four questions:

  • Describe your company's near-term and long-term plans to offer launch services to the U.S. Government.
  • What are the critical issues that concern current and prospective launch service providers who intend to provide the capability to launch national security payloads?
  • What DoD policy recommendations would your company have to improve national launch capabilities or aid industry in lowering the cost of space access?
  • What aspects of future DoD launch service or systems acquisitions would contribute to industrial base stabilization in your respective sectors?

The announcement was published in today's Federal Register.   Any member of the public may comment and information is for U.S. Government use only and will not be shared with external parties.

Responses, preferably in electronic form, are due by June 21, 2013 to: 

Lt, Col. Robert Long
Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of the Air Force for Space
1670 Air Force Pentagon
Washington, DC 20330-1670
