In June 2012, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation, in coordination with the U.S. Air Force, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Reconnaissance Office began a survey and assessment of the U.S. space industrial base supply chain network. The principal purpose of this project is to gain an understanding of the complicated network supporting the development, production and sustainment of products and services across the defense, intelligence community, civil and commercial space sectors.
Historically, the U.S. Government has had limited visibility into the issues and challenges facing the lower tiers of the space industrial base.
An important part of this survey and assessment is to provide survey respondents and other interested parties with important results and findings throughout the data collection period. The presentations below are intended to provide respondents with examples of how their data is incorporated into the broader assessment of the space industrial base. This website will be updated over time with publically available presentations provided by BIS staff.*
