Defense News cites the Atlantic Council for hosting an event with SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell:
Speaking at an Atlantic Council event Wednesday, Gwynne Shotwell, the company’s president and COO, insisted she has not seen “any impact” on the certification process since her company launched its suit.
“There are two elements here,” Shotwell said. “There’s the procurement end and then there’s certification. We’ve been working with the Air Force on the certification side. There’s been a lot of rhetoric about it, but if you were to ask [Lt. Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski, the head of Space and Missile Systems Command] and myself, we are moving forward regardless of the activity on the other side.
“The certification process is new. We’re kind of grinding it out together, paving the way for the next set of new entrants.”
