The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its commercial space policy, which sets a broad framework for agency use of commercial space-based approaches.

The policy establishes critical components for engaging with the commercial sector: designating the Office of Space Commerce as a single point of entry for commercial providers to streamline the process for easier engagement; establishing an open and transparent marketplace; defining guiding principles, implementation considerations and strategic planning for potential commercial data buys; establishing demonstration projects to test and evaluate new potential data sources; and providing an avenue to operational commercial data buys.
