David Goldfein

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein has said he plans to propose to his foreign counterparts an international air chiefs conference that would focus on joint space warfighting operations, Defense News reported Thursday.

The proposed conference would be linked to the annual Space Symposium in Colorado.

Goldfein told the publication in a Tuesday interview that the growth in the commercial space sector suggests that military leaders should determine whether they have shared space-based objectives and know how to transition that interest to defense contractors that plan to perform innovative work in space.

“There’s huge opportunity ahead for us as we look to leverage where industry is going with this lower-cost access to space because you have more access to economical launch and you’ve got payloads that are coming down in size,” he added.
