COTS is a Win/Win

According to Spaceworks Engineering COTS is good for everyone. Clark Lindsey has more. Here is the full report.

"The popular opinion is that the COTS approach is cheaper for NASA and makes good business sense for the commercial companies, but no publicly available study prior to this one has investigated the sincerity of this claim," according to Dr. Dominic DePasquale, Systems Engineer at SpaceWorks Engineering, Inc.
