3 Overview Introduction The past year has seen substantial growth in space technology and capabilities. A vibrant commercial sector has led the way with compelling products that provide significant value to customers around the globe. Despite budget constraints in some countries, governments have continued to invest heavily in space agencies, exploration programs, and the further development of commercial capabilities. Interest in the space industry has increased and has created a surge of young excited talent, providing the building blocks for future success. Venture capital firms and other investors are demonstrating interest in the potential of space to introduce world-changing technologies. For all of these reasons, the outlook for the space sector is very bright in the years to come. 1.0 Space Products and Services Space products and services continue to become more readily available and integrated into daily life for billions of people. Some technologies rely on space assets to deliver their benefits, such as communication or navigation devices, whereas other technologies can claim a space heritage but have been spun off and no longer require space systems in order to function properly. Across the many fields of activity that benefit from space technology, a common theme is emerging. Customers are demanding, and receiving, greater control over the way they interact with space products and services. This shift in power is not unique to the space industry it is a fundamental change that is happening across multiple technology markets. The ability to exercise a greater element of control and input, and to create interfaces between space and other forms of information technology, will both improve the adoption rate of space technology and provide space companies with a wealth of data on where to focus their efforts. EXHIBIT 1. Global Space Activity, 2013 $41.26 B (13%) $32.84 B (11%) $ B (37%) $ B (39%) Commercial Space Products and Services Commercial Infrastructure and Support Industries U.S. Government Space Budgets Non-U.S. Government Space Budgets Another way the public is interacting with the space community is through government- or industrysponsored competitions to develop new applications. By harnessing the talent from a broader community, the space industry gains creative new techniques that it can use and potential goods and services that it can provide based on existing space systems. Regardless of whether insight is gained from competitions or ongoing interactions with current customers, the companies that are most likely to be successful in the long term are those that are responsive to their customers needs and desire for increasingly integrated technologies. Total: $ Billion Space Foundation 2.0 The Space Economy The global space economy grew by 4% in 2013, reaching a new record of $ billion. The majority of this growth, both in absolute terms and as a percentage, took place on the commercial side of the economy. Commercial products, services, infrastructure, and support industries all add up to slightly more than three-quarters of the space economy, with government spending constituting the remainder. Overall government spending declined by 1.7% in 2013, as significant cuts in the U.S. space budget were only partly offset by growth in the space budgets of other countries. Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity declined in 2013, with 24 space-related transactions compared to 30 in This change was in line with global defense M&A trends, as companies exercised caution in response to uncertainty 4 The Space Report 2014

4 Overview in government budgets for aerospace and defense activities. As uncertainty begins to recede in the United States and elsewhere, and as global demand for satellite services continues to increase, it is likely that M&A activity will rise again in the near future. Investor confidence in the outlook for publicly traded space companies is evidenced by the robust performance of the Space Foundation Indexes in The indexes track the performance of space stocks listed on U.S. exchanges, and they experienced gains for the year of 34 48%, which compares favorably to 30% for the S&P 500 and 38% for the NASDAQ.

This level of activity was slightly higher than the average rate of 79 launches per year for the past five years. New launch vehicles made their first flights (or first successful flights) in five countries the Antares and Minotaur V in the United States, Soyuz 2.1v in Russia, Kuaizhou in China, Epsilon in Japan, and KSLV-1 (also called Naro-1) in Korea. The number of satellites launched to orbit in 2013 increased by nearly two-thirds compared to This was largely due to a significant uptick in the number of satellites with masses below 91 kilograms (200 pounds). These microsatellites constituted more than half of the 197 satellites launched in Many of the microsatellites were short-lived technology demonstrations, but there is a considerable degree of interest in future possibilities for constellations of small satellites that provide valuable services on an ongoing basis. Downward pressure on launch prices and cost-saving advances in satellite technology have combined to open the door for small and midsize space companies to enter the market, providing new niche services and solutions to a growing number of customers. These companies are well-positioned to serve the increasing demand for bandwidth and services across regions that expect to see large population growth, such as Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. In some cases, smaller companies will compete directly with existing large service providers, while in other cases they will The Authoritative Guide to Global Space Activity 5

5 Overview form partnerships or be acquired. The incumbents have also noted the trend in demand and are responding to the shift in value away from infrastructure and networks and toward user equipment and content. This focus on the end-user experience will be a major market driver in the years to come. 4.0 Workforce and Education Workforce trends in different countries varied significantly, as the U.S. space workforce contracted for the sixth year in a row, in contrast with growth in Europe and Japan. The hundreds of thousands of skilled employees who make up the space workforce continue to be drawn from a pool of highly skilled individuals who frequently have advanced levels of education and training in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). In the United States, the space workforce declined by 3.5% from 2011 to 2012, the most recent year for which data is available. Several factors likely contributed to this change, including the end of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011, post-recession tightening of budgets, and uncertainty about future federal funding for space projects. At the government level, NASA faces challenges related to an aging workforce, which the agency is working to address by recruiting more young workers. These efforts have been successful to the extent that the number of workers under the age of 35 is on the rise. However, as of the start of fiscal year 2014, the number of NASA employees eligible to retire at any moment was greater than the number of employees under 35. Although detailed demographic information on the U.S. national security space workforce is unavailable, it is possible that there are similar issues with aging, as more than 30% of the broader Department of Defense civilian STEM workforce was eligible for retirement as of September In Europe, space industry employment increased in 2012 for the seventh consecutive year, with growth of 1.5%. The European workforce is concentrated in five countries France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Spain which collectively account for more than 85% of European space employees. The Japanese industry workforce grew by 11% in 2012, continuing its multiyear growth from a low point in A different trend can be seen at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), which has shed nearly 15% of its workforce over the past 10 years. However, JAXA has a healthy demographic profile that bodes well for the future, with only 14% of its workforce over the age of 54 and 22% under Perspective In a future market with more players and lower barriers to entry, technology advancement is opening a larger number of applications in space. The space industry is evolving rapidly to take advantage of the opportunities presented in multiple sectors. Rather than undercutting each other by competing on price alone, space companies are emphasizing the creation of new forms of value for their customers. By differentiating the services that are offered, and focusing on the unique benefits that space systems provide, the industry has found ways to meet the challenges presented by terrestrial service providers that are edging in on some markets that have been traditionally dominated by space. As governments look to the future of space exploration, a variety of policy discussions are looming with regard to human and robotic activities. Critical decisions regarding the International Space Station and other human spaceflight programs are expected to be made in the next year or two, potentially shaping the path of exploration for decades to come. The environment for robotic exploration is also in a state of flux, as emerging space powers such as India transition away from a pure domestic focus to one that encompasses missions to Mars and other distant destinations. Interest in space activity is expanding to levels of government below the national level, as states and regions within countries seek to expand their space industries and develop solutions specific to local needs. The investments in economic development agencies and space applications provide yet another illustration of the increasing accessibility and desirability of space. When viewed in combination with the customer-oriented actions of the commercial sector, it is clear that space is no longer the domain of a select few space is for everyone. 6 The Space Report 2014
