1. Global Presence: Space enables global military operations through satellite communications, providing real-time data exchange and coordination across vast distances.
  2. Surveillance and Reconnaissance: Military satellites are crucial for surveillance and reconnaissance, offering high-resolution imagery and signals intelligence to monitor potential threats and gather strategic information.
  3. Navigation and Timing: The Global Positioning System (GPS) and similar satellite navigation systems are essential for precision in military movements, targeting, and coordination of forces globally.
  4. Space as a Strategic Domain: Recognising space as a critical domain for national security, many countries are establishing space commands or forces to protect their interests and assets in space.
  5. Anti-Satellite Capabilities: The development and testing of anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons by various nations pose risks to space assets, leading to concerns about space becoming an arena for warfare.
  6. International Collaboration and Regulation: There's an increasing emphasis on international collaboration and legal frameworks to ensure space remains a safe and sustainable environment for both civilian and military activities.
