GovConJudicata Weekly Debrief (5/20–24)

This week's Weekly Debrief covers artificial intelliegence, ship-launched drones, SDA's FOO Fighter satellites, and internet routing.


  • "In the months after ChatGPT’s public release, leaders inside NASA debated the merits and flaws of generative AI tools, according to more than 300 pages of emails obtained by FedScoop, revealing both excitement and concerns within an agency known for its cautious approach to emergent technologies."

  • "Of all the jobs that have been on the radar for ruin at the hands of artificial intelligence (AI)—Truck driver? Personal assistant? Flight attendant, even?—one profession that most people did not imagine might find competition at the hands of new technology is "whistleblower." If anything, it's been whistleblowers who have been clanging the bell about the dangers of AI. But in fact, AI is a technology that in this case, could be used for good. It could be just the right tool for detecting certain kinds of fraud that corporations and others have become highly skilled at covering up from employees or the government.


  • "The Space Development Agency (SDA) is planning to develop a separate ground system infrastructure for its experimental “FOO Fighter” fire control satellites — with the first of two planned requests for proposals set for June 18, Director Derek Tournear said today."


  • "The Office of the National Cyber Director is working with agencies to accelerate efforts to “clean up” insecure internet routing techniques that can lead to cybersecurity risks. White House National Cyber Director Harry Coker expects that more than half of all advertised federal IP space will adopt more secure routing agreements by the end of this year. The goal is to get to Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI), which provides security for internet routing to help prevent traffic from being hijacked by hackers."
