Space, Freedom, and the Future- How Rapid Satellite Launch Capabilities Can Support Critical DoD Missions
While the DOD, NASA, and other government agencies are starting to investigate rapid launch technology, many companies are already working on rapid satellite launch capabilities to deal with events on Earth as well as in space.
The saying, “innovate or die,” isn’t overdramatic – if companies don’t collaborate in today’s highly competitive marketplace, their proposals won’t be as strong. The ability to expand product portfolios is perhaps the most important reason of them all, as this is the main reason most companies are looking to team. Businesses can bring their resources together to form a think tank and both benefit from the research and innovation.

The importance of seeing a project successfully completed from ideation to prototype cannot be understated. Advancing critical government technology, connecting with leading innovators, and improving the future of national security are vital. But it’s not always easy.
OTAs offer an alternative to the lengthier contracting process governed by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) by removing onerous requirements that small businesses advancing dual-use technologies have trouble fulfilling.
