The Center for Space Policy and Strategy is dedicated to shaping the future of space by providing nonpartisan research and strategic analysis to decisionmakers, and to informing broader public discussions of space policy. The CSPS is part of The Aerospace Corporation, a nonprofit organization that advises the government on complex space enterprise and systems engineering problems.

The Center exists to address the growing need for expert analysis supporting the development of well-informed, technically defensible, and forward-looking space and technology policy. The Center does not advocate for particular policies, but rather provides objective analysis and data to support key decision makers and an informed public debate. Our mission is to apply respected technical expertise to help decisionmakers explore the full implications of any policy proposal, and to help highlight key opportunities and challenges well before they reach policymakers’ desks.
