1 min read


Two Commerce Department officials emphasized their support for the commercial space industry during the Satellite 2018 conference that was held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center last week.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told event audience Monday that he aims to elevate space commerce functions as part of DOC’s five-year strategic plan, the department said Friday.

David Redl, assistant secretary of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, said during his speech Wednesday at the convention that DOC looks to invest in spacecraft and ground station manufacturing projects.

The department expects that next-generation satellite systems will help increase the performance of national broadband infrastructure and drive advanced services.
