A Framework for Space Security: An Alternative for Weaponizing Space

Part of a 5-year project to investigate the state of space security and to consider the potential risk of its weaponization (especially in light of the 2007 anti-satellite weapon tests on satellites in Low Earth Orbit [LEO]) - this publication established a framework that aimed to prevent a costly and dangerous space arms race - one that could lead to harmful space debris and catastrophic environmental consequences. © The Eisenhower Institute, Gettysburg College, 2007
