Jared Stout advises clients on a wide variety of interdisciplinary aerospace issues in the civil, commercial, and national security space sectors. Jared has extensive experience working with federal government departments and agencies, including research, science, and technology development programs within the federal government. Throughout his career, he has focused on the nexus among government policy, implementation, and industry development. He maintains an extensive network of academic, policy, government, and industry professionals, and pulls together these various stakeholders to bring policy goals to fruition.

In his various roles throughout his career in the public sector, Jared has worked on numerous legislative initiatives, including various NASA Authorization Acts and the Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act. While at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Office of Commercial Space Transportation, he built new strategies for engagement with the public and Congress to achieve significant advances in commercial space policy, and provided policy guidance and direction for legislative, communications, management, and industry priorities. While he was at the National Space Council, he organized, managed, developed, and implemented national space policy initiatives, and provided policy analysis and advice to senior leaders of the administration, including Vice President Mike Pence, chair of the National Space Council; the executive secretary of the National Space Council; and the policy leadership at the White House. These efforts led to President Trump signing three significant Space Policy Directives, over the span of 12 months, covering NASA's human spaceflight program, commercial space regulatory reform, and the most comprehensive national space traffic management policy in the nation's history.
