Lawmakers chart ‘middle course’ on space-based missile warning funding
Sam Wilson, a senior policy analyst at the Aerospace Corporation — a space-focused federally funded research and development center — told C4ISRNET that while the additional money from Congress gives the Space Force flexibility to make progress on its missile warning and tracking plans, the details of the legislation reflect some shifts away from the administration’s proposed approach.
“There are different opinions on what this transition should look like, what this bridging strategy means,” Wilson said in an interview.
