How can identifying distinct schools of thought in space allow us to better understand the choices being made today about how to organize and fund space for national security?

This webinar, featuring Russell Rumbaugh, will discuss six schools of operational thought in national security space being advanced today by a small group of experts, who themselves are divided on what is most important about space in achieving U.S. national security.

This is an interactive webinar, so attendees are encouraged to pose questions and comments to Mr. Rumbaugh. To take full advantage of this discussion, please review his paper, What Place for Space: Competing Schools of Operational Thought in Space.
