Space Acquisitions: DOD Needs More Guidance on Decisions to Store Satellites: Congressional Briefing
Cristina T. Chaplin (au)
Several of the Department of Defense's (DODäó»s) satellites now being produced will be placed in storage before being launched, either in facilities on the ground or on orbit in space. Reduced funds and other challenges have led DOD to consider efforts that could change the way it acquires satellites, which may also affect how and when it stores satellites. DOD needs sufficient insight into the costs to minimize the government's risk of paying contractors more than necessary. The briefing addressed the following: (1) How does storage factor into DOD's satellite acquisition programs and strategies? (2) What satellite storage costs has DOD identified? (3) What steps has DOD taken to assess the effects of satellite storage on operational lifetimes and the associated risks and benefits of storage? and (4) How do other agencies -- NASA, NOAA, and the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) -- use satellite storage? Figures. This is a print on demand report.
