EU space industry incentive plan angers White House

43
Scott Pace, Executive Director of the United States National Space Council, issued a veiled warning that was addressed to the European Union. The threat is linked to the new European plan to stimulate the continent's space industry.




Underscoring the “need for transatlantic cooperation in space in the face of growing threats,” Pace urged the EU not to create space exploration and procurement projects that would block the participation of non-EU NATO allies in them. Despite the use of a diplomatic code in the appeal, the warning sounded clear enough: do not do this, or the Trump administration will be forced to respond.

According to the official, new opportunities may appear for “NATO and the EU in coordinating the development of space potential,” but only if the European Union “properly structures” its own space programs. He further reiterated the recent joint statements of the two organizations that both structures should have access to the initiatives developed by each organization, while they should remain “coherent, compatible” and “accessible to both organizations.”

Perhaps more importantly, these commitments should encourage the maximum possible participation of NATO allies that are not members of the EU in EU defense initiatives.

- stressed Pace. These principles, according to the American, are applicable to space programs. It is worth noting that Albania, Iceland, Norway and Turkey are members of NATO, but not the European Union.

Comments were made in connection with the fact that the European Commission plans to hold a hearing on the approval of the candidacy of Sylvia Goulard, put forward by France to oversee the ambitious new Plan to expand economic and political support for the development of the defense and space industry in Europe. The plan, which includes the creation of a new directorate for space and defense, as well as aimed at attracting investment from the EU, is increasingly attracting the attention of the Trump administration. The White House considers the plan protectionist, and considers the situation as negative, expecting restrictions on access to the promising market of American companies.

In his new role, Gular will be responsible for the implementation and oversight of the EU space policy, collective investments and programs worth 16 billion euros. She will also be responsible for the new European Defense Fund in the amount of 13 billion euros, which involves investment in industry in the EU countries.

    It seems that the Americans have already completely lost their shores if they threaten the EU for the development of the EU's own space industry.

            The worst thing is that they understand this, but at the same time they pretend that they do not understand, their "allies" in NATO.
            The US has leverage over the "allies" elite. And they press more and more.

            Most likely, everyone in the USA understands everything perfectly, but in the USA they are so used to their exclusivity that they have completely lost their sense of proportion and caution. In the future, this is very likely to bring the United States no small harm.

            They didn't refuse. They fly to the ISS "for free" according to the quota of the Americans who pay for them. If they still want to pay for a place in the Soyuz in a short-term mission, then they are welcome. laughing And long half-year missions - only by quota.

            It’s unlikely that anyone will send Trump and Co openly. And slowly they will push their way as Comrade Trump puzzles his allies more and more.

        They want, yes, the "Wishlist" is already broken, to be monopolists in everything and over everyone! They don't need competitors. Sales of their products plus warranty and post-warranty service and repair. As they say - "Nothing personal, just BUSINESS"! And in business there are no friends.

      By this decision, the Europeans were the first to decide to make the US cancer, and so they snarl.
      1. Money. In science-intensive industries, it is very difficult to assess the costs, since there are great risks, so cutting money there is a common occurrence. And American companies were not given access to this money.
      2. Technology. The USA turns out to be automatically pushed aside from new technologies that can be obtained in the course of development. For a country that is a technology leader, this is a blow in the gut. Russia and China are squeezing them out politically and economically, and then they will start to squeeze them out of technology.

        Roscosmos does not launch its PN on European carriers because it will be more banal than launching on domestic missiles. At the same time, joint launches on joint programs with Europe, where the budget share of the project is distributed between the two agencies .... Russia is beneficial, as well as Europe. Yes, even the Americans, having learned that we are going to launch a mission to Venus, despite the sanctions, continue to cooperate in this project.

            What do you mean they won't? )))) If you are talking about the "Union in the GCC" program, then it was previously planned until 2023. And it's not a fact that the start will be mothballed after. As for our launch vehicles from our territory, firstly, there is intensive cooperation on spacecraft payloads and engines with TAS and Airbus. Second, there is an attractive commercial cost of launching a spacecraft for customers. Third, an extensive Lunar program is planned, where ESA is taking part.

    Space is, first of all, trained personnel. Gone are the days of self-taught individuals. Behind the facade of the "space business" is a series of educational programs in which their "sharks" prowl, grabbing the best. The USA is simply buying up the necessary specialists. We teach a person for 5 years in a university, so that he learns to shout: "Free cash register!", Or "move mobile phones", or think - and whether his video will "go" to U-Tub, there the cat falls so cool from the closet!
    So the rocket is on the launch pad, it is at the "exit", and at the "entrance", it is the entrance of the research institute, through which hundreds of young specialists pass every day ...
