3:20 pm - 4:00 pm TOWARDS A NEW APPROACH TO DETERRENCE IN AND FROM SPACE

  • Mitigating the threats that space integration poses to the overall military approach to joint operations
  • How do we realistically deter in space? Using the increased reliability and repeatability of launch services to additively improve overall capability and reduce vulnerability for space systems
  • Interfacing policy and doctrine on space with capability in space to realistically determine an approach to deterrence
