Trump issued Space Policy Directive – 2 (SPD-2), Streamlining Regulations on Commercial Use of Space. The section on radio frequency spectrum requires the Secretary of Commerce and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to provide a report to the President “on improving the global competitiveness of the United States space sector through radio frequency spectrum policies, regulation, and United States activities at the International Telecommunication Union and other multilateral forums.” This report responds with a set of recommendations to support the radio frequency needs of the United States space sector.
