Rocket Propulsion


Rocket Propulsion Survey

The U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation, in coordination with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and U.S. Department of Defense co-chaired Joint Army, Navy, NASA, Air Force Interagency Propulsion Committee (JANNAF) is conducting a survey and assessment of rocket propulsion-related products and services.

The principal goal of this assessment is to gain an understanding of the intricate supply chain network supporting the development, production, and sustainment of products and services across both the U.S. Government (USG) and commercial propulsion-related sectors. Consequently, the USG will be better informed when developing targeted planning, acquisition, and investment strategies to ensure the availability and security of the U.S. rocket propulsion supply chain.


This is a mandatory BIS survey for organizations that are responsible for researching, designing, engineering, developing, manufacturing, testing, and integration of rocket propulsion-related products, components, and services in the Unites States.

BIS has partnered with DOC’s Census Bureau to administer a secure survey submission portal. You will be automatically redirected to the Census web portal in 30 seconds.

Census will be acting solely as the administrator for the website and secure survey submission portal. BIS retains sole responsibility for survey support, compliance, and records management.
