NASA Forms Non-Federal Aerospace Advisory Group for National Space Council

NASA has formed an advisory group on behalf of the National Space Council to represent non-federal aerospace organizations.

The space agency said Tuesday the Users’ Advisory Group will advise and inform the National Space Council on various aerospace issues such as U.S. and international laws and regulations; security matters concerning civil and commercial space sectors; and space exploration priorities, among others.

UAG will have between 15 and 30 members who will be selected to serve as representatives or special government employees.

Representatives will be chosen from non-federal aerospace organizations to advocate for their sectors while SGEs will be appointed for their expertise in a particular aerospace field to give objective advice.
