The space domain enables everyday life in commercial, civil and military industries. Today, technology development is driving lower cost launch and the proliferation of space assets. The intersection of government and commercial developments provide hybrid space architectures which accomplish missions with newfound speed and agility. As space matures, technology that was once hosted on the ground is moving to space. However, space is increasingly becoming contested, putting future developments at risk.
