Introduction to Space Conflict
The possibility of conflict, including armed conflict, extending to outer space exists.
Increasing geo-political polarisation, and the congested and contested nature of outer space ensure that cooperative use of space is always fragile. The exploitation of, or interference with, space-based commercial, communications, navigation, and sensing functions and capabilities thus touches upon myriad strategic, operational, regulatory, and governance challenges.
This course provides a one-day introduction to the context of conflict in, from, and through space, from four perspectives: legal, ethical, strategic, and operational.
