Abstract:

Recognizing the challenge of Space Control and its security concerns facing U.S. forces, I offer some information and ideas to generate further discussions and new thinking. Many people speak of Space control in hushed tones afraid to reveal sensitive information. The commanding general, U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, LTG Joseph M. Cosumano, stated we must normalize Space shortly after assuming command. In order to normalize Space, you must think, discuss and integrate it while maintaining the security necessary to protect capabilities. The introduction article to this issue highlights the fact that businesses and civil authorities embrace Space as a way to save time and money and has become an integral part to our way of life. The impact of this Space investment is an enormous advantage in quantity, quality, and applied technologies that have weaved their way into many aspects of our economy. An investment this valuable and integrated into our society must be protected.
