The panel will examine how governments will be able to procure turnkey services aboard commercially-owned and operated low Earth orbit (LEO) destinations before the end of the decade. Commercial crew and cargo models have enabled governments to buy “space as a service” from commercial providers, upending traditional government contracting models, speeding innovation and the delivery essential capabilities. The group highlights the need for a predictable investment environment and procurement processes that will foster new markets and ensure the commercial viability of LEO destinations.
