streamlining the validation process and enhancing the overall effectiveness of
the Air Force Space Command Certification & Accreditation (C&A) process."

Assessment service that addresses the increasing threats and unique
requirements for the commercial satellite industry. The assessment delivers a
detailed view of satellite network preparedness along with recommended steps
to mitigate risks and ensure compliance with applicable regulations, standards
and guidelines.
