A Day Without Space: Considering National Security Implications September 8, 2011

Posted by George C. Marshall Institute in Uncategorized.

On July 19, 2011 the Space Enterprise Council and the George C. Marshall Institute hosted A Day Without Space: Considering National Security Implications.

The Day Without Space series was launched in 2008 and strives to educate policy makers and the public about the growing importance of space to their daily lives and to U.S. economic and national security. Through a series of meetings, we discussed how the use of space for economic and military purposes has changed, considered why and how adversaries would seek to interdict or degrade U.S. space capabilities, and detailed the challenges confronting the U.S’s ability to respond or recover from attacks on its space assets.

Transcripts and related materials for the series are available at http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=928.

The July 19 session was the second of four sessions planned for 2011. In this session, we focused on the use of space in meeting the national security missions of the United States. Speakers discussed how space is used and explained how and why prospective adversaries might interdict or disrupt the use of space.

Speakers included:

  • Lt. Gen. (ret.) Brian Arnold, Vice President, Space Strategy, Raytheon
  • Dr. Pete Hays, Associate Director, Eisenhower Center for Space Studies
  • Dr. John Sheldon, Director of the National Space Studies Center, School of Advanced Air and Space Studies, & Fellow, Marshall Institute
  • Dr. Steve Pierce, Director, Decision Support Directorate, SMD Future Warfare Center
