Session 12B: : Government and Industry Dialog – Turning the Tables for GSAW 2020
Lead: Dan Smith, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Moderator: Donald Sather, The Aerospace Corporation

In past years, GSAW has held evening sessions with government reps on the panel talking about trends and taking questions from the commercial products and services providers.  For 2020, we are turning the tables!  Industry members will be on the panel explaining their views on trends, similarities and differences across the government agencies, and the business case for supporting small and large government programs.  The audience members, including those from government space agencies and those from industry, may agree or disagree with panel members as we expand the conversation in new directions.  With major commonality initiatives of the Space Force and NASA, and the amazing growth of commercial space, it should be an interesting evening with a mix of both common and contradictory ideas.
