In September 2016, ITTA, Inc. held a seminar for Japanese companies interested in entering the US aerospace, space and national security market in support of the Japan Aerospace and Exploration Agency (JAXA). Eric Lundell, Constantine Pagedas and Joshua Marciano addressed the practical knowledge and advice regarding how non-US companies enter the US market, the US rules and regulations that would govern their entry and operations; and US export control issues that could directly affect their businesses and operations.
