America, Canada Do Well in Optimizing Space Technology, China Hindered


Futron has released new analysis that benchmarks space technology among the top 10 leading space powers, which identifies specific technologies where countries optimize their economic and industrial competitiveness, or vice versa, where nations fail to effectively leverage technical capabilities. The release of Futron’s 2010 Space Technology Capacity Index represents an important milestone in integrating technology capability and use into national space competitiveness.

Canada represents another country that effectively disseminates its technology.
