Abstract : Like air, land, sea, and cyberspace, the space domain is vital to our nation's military, civil, and commercial interests. Space has had an international dimension since the first satellites went into orbit. However, the growing importance of space as an enabler of global communication, transportation, commerce and warfighting effectiveness, and the increasing number and sophistication of space-faring and space-consuming nations places the international dimension in a new light. While increased international presence in space and highly sophisticated foreign capabilities can present challenges for US national security, they can also present opportunities to enhance our security. Serious policy and operational questions exist regarding increased international cooperation. This quarter's High Frontier is devoted to International Space and presents intriguing perspectives from preeminent representatives of government, academia, and industry.
