Excerpt: In 1984, the Department of Transportation (DOT) was designated as the lead agency for United States (U.S.) commercial launch activities by Executive Order of the President. Later that year, Congress enacted the Commercial Space Launch Act of 1984 (CSLA), which authorized DOT to regulate U.S. commercial launch activities. The DOT designated the Office of Commercial Space Transportation (OCST) as the lead to carry out these responsibilities including: In October 1998, Congress enlarged AST?s role in the oversight of commercial space launch activities to include licensing of reentries and reentry sites. AST's mission is to ensure protection of the public, property, and national security and foreign policy interests of the U.S. during a commercial launch or reentry activity and to encourage, facilitate, and promote U.S. commercial space transportation. AST?s mission is accomplished through both the regulation of commercial space launch and reentry activities and the promotion of industry growth. Low-cost, reliable access to space is the foundation on which many other commercial and strategic applications of space technology are based. The benefits and spin-offs from these technologies touch almost every aspect of the ability of the U.S. to remain at the forefront of world technology advancement and economic prosperity. Background and History: (1) Licensing and regulating all U.S. commercial launch activities to ensure that they are conducted safely and responsibly, and (2) Promoting, encouraging, and facilitating the growth of the U.S. commercial space transportation industry.
