A strong and profitable NewSpace commercial sector enabled, supported, and protected by Government which, in-turn, utilises NewSpace to enhance its security, prestige, and wealth while it blazes new trails in space.

Publish a report NLT 1 Oct 2011 on a study sponsored jointly and collaborated upon broadly, that identifies strategic opportunities opened up to government by successes in the NewSpace commercial sector.  In parallel, identify actions and investments that can be taken by government that will increase the probability of success in NewSpace ventures, and the spacefaring responsibilities government must or should incur as a result.  In short, describe the mutual benefits and necessary interactions of government and NewSpace spacefaring activities.

1. The role of government is to blaze trails, promote commerce, and protect its interests.
2. The role of NewSpace is commerce.
3. The interest of government is security, prestige, and wealth.
4. The interest of NewSpace is profit.
5. The interests of government can be served by successes in NewSpace ventures.
6. NewSpace can be helped or hindered by government actions and investments.
7. Government may regulate NewSpace to help, not hinder, national interests.
