The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), In-space Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing (ISAM) Interagency Working Group (IWG) coordinates science and technology policy, strategy, and federal research and development (R&D) pertaining to ISAM-related capabilities. This coordinated effort aims to ensure that U.S. leadership in ISAM capabilities and their applications are maintained and expanded for future use.

The IWG sought input to help inform their development of a strategic implementation plan.  MITRE’s experiences with ISAM center on space and airspace traffic, debris, worker health, and building consensus for collaborative decision making. We’ve focused on providing insights along these lines within this response.
