In a week of challenges within our nation, we took the time to acknowledge the resurgence of American space and focus on relevant solutions in space for external threats to our nation and our allies to uphold the status quo and international order in a dynamic world where the near peers of China and Russia are raising challenges in these uncharacteristic times.
We brought forward an in depth discussion on the space layer from a Congressional perspective, the U.S. Northern Command’s (NORTHCOM) perspective for the defense of the United States homeland, the Missile Defense Agency’s perspectives of deployed and developing space sensor missile defense systems, and the new formed Space Development Agency’s perspective for how the overall architecture fits together and on implementing that vision.
MDAA’s third virtual Congressional Roundtable was held yesterday on “The Space Layer: Hypersonic and Ballistic Missile Tracking Space Satellites.” Click here for both video and transcripts of the event.
MDAA’s mission is to make the world safer by advocating for the development and deployment of missile defense systems to defend the United States, its armed forces and its allies against missile threats.
MDAA is the only organization in existence whose primary mission is to educate the American public about missile defense issues and to recruit, organize, and mobilize proponents to advocate for the critical need of missile defense. We are a non-partisan membership-based and membership-funded organization that does not advocate on behalf of any specific system, technology, architecture or entity.
