David Livingston's The Space Show: Broadcast 3624
David Livingston, the host of The Space Show, interviews Sam Wilson on his and Jamie Morin’s paper on leveraging commercial developments for national security space acquisition. Sam and David discuss how U.S. national security space agencies could go further in acquiring existing commercial capabilities and services instead of hiring contractors to develop custom capabilities tailored to government requirements. In the podcast, Sam takes questions from David and listeners about national security space acquisition, commercial technologies, and risk tolerance approaches agencies should follow when using commercial solutions.
