The critical components of partnerships to protect space

10 August 2018: In an article for National Defense Magazine’s August issue, Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, Inmarsat Government’s Senior Vice President of Government Strategy and Policy discusses the importance of partnerships between the U.S. government, its allies and the commercial industry in establishing a more protected space environment.

Cowen-Hirsch references her panel discussion at the 34th Space Symposium, where she joined Department of Defense (DoD), Intelligence Community, State Department and Canadian Armed Forces leaders to examine feasible solutions in encouraging responsible behaviour in space among nations. As space continues to become an increasingly congested domain, she discusses the critical components necessary to discourage hostile actions from adversaries: unity of effort, a complete space architecture, security and interoperability.
