Kay Sears, military space general manager and vice president at Lockheed Martin's space division, has said threats posed by adversaries to U.S. space assets create “a perfect storm“ that prompts the government and companies to rapidly build new space capabilities, National Defense reported Wednesday.

“We’ve got new organizations being formed to address the challenges. “¦ We have an increasing threat environment,“ Sears said during a panel discussion Wednesday at the MILCOM conference in Los Angeles.

“And so I think there is a significant change in behavior around space, and “¦ that requires a corresponding change in behavior of all of us.“

Jamie Morgan, acting director for military satellite communications at Northrop Grumman's aerospace systems business, discussed the revamped Space and Missile Systems Center and the need to establish a resilient space architecture.

Other panelists include Tony Gingiss, CEO of OneWeb Satellites; and Roger Teague, VP for space, intelligence and missile defense operations at Boeing.
