Building Secure, Adaptable Space Systems

Competition Is Increasing 

After decades of being a “sanctuary,” the space domain is increasingly contested. Many competitor countries have prioritized space capabilities, narrowing the gap between their own achievements and U.S. dominance. The increasingly competitive nature of space means that U.S. assets are at risk from a variety of attack vectors, from physical to electronic and cyber.

And the threat extends to earth, as well—with ever-expanding reliance on electronic and cyber communications, and the interoperability demands of JADC2, the U.S. cannot afford to lose its information-sharing and information dominance capabilities due to damaged or disabled satellites.

Assets Are Multiplying

Nation-states are not alone in low-earth orbit—the commercial space presence is increasing exponentially year-over-year, crowding the once-solitary region with thousands of space-based assets. As technology advancements simplify access to space, and costs of entry decline, overcrowding will only grow worse. 

As the Department of Defense and intelligence community work to ensure U.S. space dominance remains in place, they can take advantage of the latest in digital advancements to modernize systems and processes  

We’ve summarized three keys to success for dominating the space domain in this overview, Building Secure, Adaptable Space Systems: New Space Technology for National Security and JADC2. Download it now to learn:
