Rick Ambrose, executive vice president of Lockheed Martin's space business, has said the U.S. and the U.K. implement “very similar strategies“ when it comes to securing rapid and cheaper space access, SpaceNews reported Tuesday.

His remarks at a separate news event Tuesday came a day after the U.K. space agency awarded Lockheed a potential $31 million contract to provide support for the country's spaceflight program that aims to establish a commercial launch market that will provide regular access to space.

“As the U.K. develops its space industry further, I think you'll see bigger economics from the mini-satellites and the value they create from data, from science and from military missions,“ Ambrose said.

He also shared his views on large geosynchronous orbit satellites, small satellites, responsive space and additive manufacturing.

“That is how I bring small and large, and converge in a way that I can use many similar manufacturing techniques,“ Ambrose, a 2018 Wash100 recipient, said of additive manufacturing.
