    Hearing on U.S. Space Launch Strategy Could Get Testy

    WASHINGTON – The chairman of the House Armed Services strategic forces subcommittee on June 22 set the stage for a scheduled June 26 hearing on national security space launch by declaring that Congress meant it when it directed the U.S. Air Force to end its reliance on Russian rocket engines by 2019.

    “It is not the time to fund new launch vehicles, or new infrastructure, or rely on unproven technologies,” Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) said in a press release announcing the hearing. “It is the time for the Pentagon to harness the power of the American industrial base, and move with purpose and clarity in order to swiftly develop an American rocket propulsion system that ends our reliance on Russia as soon as possible.”

    The hearing, the panel’s second on the topic in four months, will focus on U.S. efforts to end reliance on the Russian-built RD-180 engine that powers the U.S. military’s main workhorse, the United Launch Alliance Atlas 5. Congress late last year ordered the Air Force to immediately begin working on an American-built replacement engine and appropriated $225 million for the effort.

    “I will not allow the resources Congress has made available for this purpose to be wasted or misused,” Rogers said.

    Babin To Take Over House Space Subcommittee

    Action Needed on Commercial Crew Funding

    Commercial Crew funding for next year ... is in trouble. The House committee that handles NASA appropriations (the Commerce, Justice, Science or CJS Appropriations Subcommittee) increased Space Launch System funding by a half-billion over NASA’s request. They took a quarter billion of that from Commercial Crew.
    The House CJS Subcommittee’s version of next year’s CJS Appropriations bill cuts NASA’s 2016 Commercial Crew request from $1.244 billion to a billion even. NASA is on record that such a reduction will both push back Commercial Crew initial flights from late 2017, and also require NASA to renegotiate their current contracts with SpaceX and Boeing. Our analysis supports this position.

    It’s not at all clear what an extra half-billion for SLS will accomplish – NASA is on record that increasing funding at this point won’t help get it to first flight any sooner. Taking a quarter-billion from Commercial crew, on the other hand, will almost certainly cost NASA a half-billion in 2018 for another year’s worth of Soyuz rides to Station.
