Abstract : This thesis provides a theoretical foundation for space warfare, develops a space theory based on irregular warfare principles, and applies the theory towards a US space strategy. Space warfare is a subset to general war theory because space actions are merely political extensions and can be violent. An irregular space warfare theory's primary purpose is to ensure survivable space-derived services.
