DoD Works With Interagency Group on Space Industrial Base Review

The Defense Department is working with NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Reconnaissance Office on the space portion of a report on the state of the defense industrial base, Space News reported Sunday.

Brennan Hogan Grignon, industry outreach director for the defense secretary, said at a House Aerospace Caucus event that the interagency group is studying ways to share space technology and collaborate on space-related acquisitions.

“With the innovation in space technology that is happening, there is growing interest in coordinating programs and requirements across the agencies,” Hogan Grignon noted.

She added that DoD could partner with NASA and FAA on procurement initiatives to address overlapping space requirements.

Hogan Grignon leads the defense industrial base review that DoD must submit in April to comply with President Donald Trump’s order titled “Assessing and Strengthening the Manufacturing and Defense Industrial Base and Supply Chain Resiliency of the United States.”
