The Independent Working Group (IWG) on Missile Defense and the Space Relationship held this Capitol Hill conference on April 20, 2012, in Washington, D.C. Organized by IFPA, the meeting brought together expertise on space, nuclear modernization, and missile defense to discuss the synergistic relationships among these core components of a broader twenty-first-century U.S. grand strategy for national security. The focus was priority issues and programs within and among space, nuclear modernization, and missile defense. Presentations were given by a panel of experts drawn primarily from IWG membership. The conference drew at least seventy-five participants from House and Senate staffs, the U.S. military services, the official civilian government, and the broader Washington, D.C., policy community.
