U.S. Satellite Export Control Policy
September 21, 2006
CSIS, the Chamber of Commerce’s Space Enterprise Council and the Satellite Industry Association recently hosted an off-the-record event on the state of satellite export controls and how these controls are affecting U.S. satellite firms. There was a clear consensus among speakers and participants that these controls are damaging U.S. firms’ global competitiveness. There was also faint optimism that the next Congress may address the problem.
