In her current capacity, Crider helps the U.S. Space Force CSO to formulate strategy, long-range plans and concept of operations to ensure the readiness of space forces.

As the Space Force's acting chief technology and innovation officer, she pushed for emerging technology integration across the federal government to maintain the nation’s competitive advantage and served as a spokesperson on behalf of the service’s technology goals. 

“We’ll be publishing soon our 2020 science and technology challenges,” Crider said Aug. 19.

The Space Force science and technology roadmap, Crider said, will be similar to the Defense Innovation Unit and the Air Force Research Laboratory, “State of the Space Industrial Base 2020: A Time for Action to Sustain U.S. Economic & Military Leadership in Space,” which calls for greater government and industry collaboration to advance the space economy and national security.

“America’s future in space is a partnership and, as with any partnership, communication is key,” Crider said. 

Join Potomac Officers Club for its 5G Summit 2020 on October 27th to learn about the impact that innovative technologies and 5G integration have on the private and public sectors, the steps the federal agencies have taken to remain up to speed with the rapid advancement of technology, and the future programs, plans and priorities as the nation aligns with emerging technology.
