Jamie Morin, VP and executive director of the Aerospace Corporation, joins the program to discuss the proposed “Space Corps” and how it would be organized within the Pentagon.


  In 2017, Congressman Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces, introduced the idea of a Space Corps. If enacted, the proposal would separate the Air Force’s space operations into a distinct military branch. One year later, the proposition has a new ally — the Commander in Chief. The president’s repeated statements advocating for a “Space Force” have brought the debate further into the public eye.   “I wouldn’t say anybody is arguing for things staying as they are now. There’s a really strong demand right now to do things like accelerate the pace of fielding space capabilities, optimizing your acquisition processes, making maybe some different choices in the kinds of things you buy so that you can adapt more rapidly in a world where potential adversaries are fielding capabilities and demonstrating them that are very problematic and threatening to the U.S. and their allies,” said Jamie Morin, VP and executive director of the Aerospace Corporation. “There’s a focus on how do we change the institution to adapt to these changes in the world. It’s a question of how far you go and what you are trying to optimize for.”
