The appointment was enacted on February 26, 2020 by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, and sees Rush join other committee members from the aerospace industry, as well as from academia and other relevant sectors. The Regulatory and Policy Committee’s functions include advising on NASA-related civil space regulation and policy related to regulation, legislation and interagency and international governance issues. The overall aim of the committee is to advance the United States’ civil space economy and policy objectives.

Rush will bring his experience from the commercial sector to the committee. Throughout his career, he has supported the creation of public-private partnerships to accelerate NASA’s flagship missions and introduce new and cutting edge technologies, such as 3D printing, to the sector. His direct experience with aligning business roadmaps with emerging technologies will position him as a key voice on policy issues.

In his tenure, he has led the expansion of the company’s portfolio across three areas: satellite manufacturing, payload development and opertations and deep space exploration solutions.
