On February 10, Forward Defense and Senior Fellow Steven Grundman convened an event with Maxar CEO Daniel Jablonsky and Anduril CEO Brian Schimpf on “Innovating the Business Model of Defense.” SpaceNews referenced the conversation in an article on Maxar smallsat developments, specifically citing Mr. Jablonsky’s insights on the need for the Department of Defense to allow companies to bid for solutions rather than build custom products.

Forward Defense, housed within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, generates ideas and connects stakeholders in the defense ecosystem to promote an enduring military advantage for the United States, its allies, and partners. Our work identifies the defense strategies, capabilities, and resources the United States needs to deter and, if necessary, prevail in future conflict.
