Space launch brings payloads into orbit that are critical to warfighters and the intelligence community. An essential part of national security, it is also a highly demanding, difficult task with no margin for error. Launch systems are examined and verified through the mission assurance process, which has helped National Security Space (NSS) accomplish a successful streak of consecutive launches. But adherence to this process could also imply fewer options and longer integration timelines. How will the NSS continue to provide assured access to space while meeting demands for modernized intelligence capabilities and national security priorities in a contested domain? This program explores these questions and more.
