Space infrastructure is a fundamental aspect of defence and our society in general—but it can be placed at risk due to geopolitics, strategic competition, offensive weapons, mistrust, misunderstandings, miscalculations and a diplomatic impasse.


Samuel Strickland writing in the Strategist, makes the following points:
  • The United Nations has an open-ended working group to reduce space threats.
  • The US, China and Russia agree—only in general terms—about how to operate in 'Space.'
  • 'Space security is weapons focused', 'space safety is behaviour and sustainable use of space focussed'.
  • Creating a transparent, precise and widely accepted framework for how nations should operate in space is crucial for future development.
