Episode 181 – Defense Budget, Space Update, CCA Decision, and PLA Reorg: The Rendezvous

In episode 181 of the Aerospace Advantage, Defense Budget, Space Update, CCA Decision, and PLA Reorg: The Rendezvous, Heather “Lucky” Penney and John “Slick” Baum chat with members of the Mitchell Institute team about topics you’ve seen in the national security headlines.

We begin the conversation exploring how and why the legislation aiding Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan finally advanced. We share perspectives regarding Congressional hearings featuring Air Force and Space Force leaders.  The team also provides perspectives regarding the CCA award to General Atomics and Anduril. Our spacepower experts dig into a number of topics: everything from changes to U.S. Government regulations that control the import and export of space technologies, to the new commercial space strategy and considerations regarding how members of the Air Guard move forward with their space missions. We wrap discussing new reforms to the Chinese military, which mark their biggest reorganization in almost a decade.
