ITAR restrictions eased for most commercial satellite components

ITAR Regulatory Environment Has Been Altered. The following items were removed from the ITAR list:

  • Certain commercial communication satellites and lower performing remote sensing satellites
  • Ground control systems and training simulators “specially designed” for telemetry, tracking and control of spacecraft
  • Radiation hardened microelectronics formerly controlled in Category XV of the ITAR
  • Parts and components of satellite bus and payloads not listed on the USML

This is a good thing, and the satellite industry has been agitating for these restrictions to be eased for years. I mean, c’mon, the Chinese and Russians stole the plans for these kind of components a long time ago.
