TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 1, 2020 — Rebecca Cowen-Hirsch, senior vice president of government strategy and policy at Inmarsat Government, said a new level of public-private collaboration that embraces a "commercial first" approach is key to innovate and modernize military space systems, ExecutiveBiz reported May 12.

She wrote in a May 8 opinion piece for Via Satellite that the government can propel the shift away from inefficient methods for procuring satellite communications technology platforms from industry through a singular advocate-led program of record.

"We must embrace our championing of space and an integrated architecture driven by commercial first principles and innovation that will grow more robust and go faster in experimenting and developing new capabilities," Cowen-Hirsch added.
