ITAR Reform

Space News is reporting President Obama is planning some much-needed changes to ITAR, the rules that govern how space technology can be sold to customers outside the US (among other things), to include a “new one-time online process” for approving exports.

The goal: easier to export equals more exports.  I love this quote if the export process really happens this way:
“from 30 days to 30 minutes, making it quicker and easier for our businesses to compete while meeting our national security requirements.”
