Space Executive Professional is a Master Course for Executive and/or Senior Leaders with significant work experience (15+ years) who require grounding in space grand strategy. These senior leaders demonstrate their understanding and application of the space domain and its supporting architecture; the application of space capabilities and interoperability across military, commercial, and civil space; evaluating threats to and from space; synthesizing space’s impact on strategy, planning, resources, and operations; and analyzing space treaties, policies, and norms. This seminar also allows for significant networking opportunities with fellow executives.
The Space Executive Professional certification consists of 24 hours of education provided through a 3-day in-person Space Domain & National Security Executive Seminar. This certification is based on the core competencies outlined here:
SP900 – The Space Domain – National Security Executive Seminar
Space 900 provides a foundation in space grand strategy to introduce students to space policy and published guidance that shapes strategic initiatives as nation states, allies and partners in space. Space 900 provides an overview of the space environment across all orbital regimes and introduces space capabilities to familiarize students with current examples across military, commercial, allied and civil space. This course provides a stark reality-check on our space vulnerabilities through a review of current adversary counter space capabilities and threat systems that provide a variety of critical services to all nations. We use a series of practical real-world vignettes and examples, to engage the student with situations where space capabilities and space mission areas are applied in support of multi-domain operations. Our discussions and exercises illustrate space interoperability, synchronization, support, and effects across the spectrum of operations. Finally, Space 900 incorporates multiple senior leader perspectives, ranging from the Department of Defense, allied/partner leaders, as well as leaders from commercial space industry. Space 900 offers the unique opportunity to have face-to-face dialogues with space enterprise leaders to enrich your experience and learning with seasoned perspective to achieve a greater awareness of the space environment, threats, and capabilities.
