Identifying the Innovations Needed for Government and Military Users

The Department of Defense (DoD) plans to spend approximately $65 billion from fiscal year 2019 to 2023 on space acquisition programs — including satellites, launch vehicles, ground components, and user equipment.

What are the various avenues new market entrants can use to engage government interests in new advanced and resilient space systems?
