Fostering Agility in Prime Contractors

Smallsat manufactures and operators often look to established (and larger) industry participants to support their programs, whether as investors, advisors, or strategic partners. Similarly, many traditional prime contractors see Smallsats as a significant part of the future of the industry, both for commercial and government programs, and see investments and strategic collaborations with Smallsat players as the way to remain relevant. Our panel will discuss what these prime contractors need to do and have done to attract the best of the Smallsat players.

Along with what prime contractors have to do a particular focus will be on what structuring challenges new entrants should expect when teaming with an existing, larger, industry partner.
