Contested, Congested and Competitive
US Space Security Posture and Military Space Forces


Sidney E. Dean, Editor


Hampton Roads International Security Quarterly
Vol. XI  Nr. 3 (July 2011)

Outer space has become the new strategic high ground. Whether commercial or military, space assets are vital to everything from weather forecasting to communications to strategic and tactical reconnaissance. Western nations must be concerned as rival (and sometimes overtly hostile) actors increase their own space presence. No nation is more dependent on space for its national security and economic welfare than the technology-oriented, globally active USA.

This issue of HRISQ will focus on US space security policy and space strategy, and examine the armed forces components dedicated to space operations. The challenges of space technology acquisition are also discussed.
