In Science and Space: The Americas Space Force is working to finalize its procurement strategy for the next National Security Launch Services contract to be awarded in 2024.

Purdy said the strategy must be approved by the Department of Defense before Space Systems Command releases a draft call for proposals. “We are trying to get everyone at the Pentagon to agree…there are many stakeholders.”

A draft application for industry proposals could be issued as early as he February 2023. General Stephen Purdy, the Space Force’s Program Director for Safe Access to Space, told on the sidelines of the Aviation, Space and Cyber ​​Conference.

The strategy under consideration relates to the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) Phase 3 contract. United Launch Alliance and SpaceX won Phase 2 in 2020, and the current contract he plans to be re-tendered in 2024.

Space Operations Director John “Jay” Raymond said Tuesday in his keynote address at the Aviation, Space and Cyber ​​Conference that the Space Force has launch sites at Cape Canaveral, Fla., and Space Force Station Vandenberg, Calif. A good year for him to conduct more than 60 launches from the East Coast and up to 18 launches from the West Coast. “These numbers are projected to increase to about 300 launches per year over the next few years,” he said. “Think about it. There are very few launches a day.”

The majority of missions on both the East and West Coasts are commercial or civilian in nature. Purdy said the rise of the private space industry requires investment in infrastructure and management of areas that more resemble commercial airports.
