Impacts of Anti-Access/Area Denial Measures on Space Systems: Issues and Implications for Army and Joint Forces [open pdf - 3MB]
From the Document: "In this monograph, Mr. Jeffrey Caton explores challenges to these space-related U.S. security priorities posed by the anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) efforts of potential adversaries. He argues that Russia and China pose the most viable A2/AD threat to U.S. space assets and contends that these nations see space activities as an integral part of their military operations and national prestige. To address possible mitigation of A2/AD efforts in the space domain, Mr. Caton provides recommendations in the areas of realistic expectations for space support, cyberspace considerations in space systems, natural space hazards, and the potential of unintentional escalation. This monograph should inform the ongoing activities of U.S. Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) as well as individual service space organizations."
