White House Releases Fact Sheet on National Space Strategy
On March 23, 2018, the White House released a fact sheet on the National Space Strategy, a document that puts forward a reinvigorated approach to ensuring U.S. leadership and success in space.
President Donald J. Trump’s new National Space Strategy drives a whole-of-government approach to United States leadership in space, in close partnership with the private sector and our allies, and is based on four essential pillars:
- Transform to more resilient space architectures;
- Strengthen deterrence and warfighting options;
- Improve foundational capabilities, structures, and processes;
- Foster conducive domestic and international environments.
Among other things, the National Space Strategy prioritizes regulatory reforms that will unshackle American industry and ensure the United States remains the leading global provider of space services and technology.
