This chapter assesses trends and developments in the commercial space sector, including the builders and users of space hardware such as rockets and satellite components, and space information technologies such as telecommunications, data relay, remote sensing, and imaging. It also examines the relationships between governments and the commercial space sector, including the government as partner and the government as regulator. Much work on civil and military programs is contracted out to the commercial sector, which today has the same capabilities as any other space actor.
