Abstract:

Some consequences implied by agreements to ban either all large rocket launchings or all large military rocket launchings are discussed. A brief review of the prospects for monitoring such agreements, and a snapshot of rocket programs and plans to indicate the variety of activities that would be affected by such bans are presented. The effects on guidance accuracy, size and type of payloads, and operational confidence in military systems are discussed. The study also examines resulting effects on offensive, defensive, and warning systems, how such bans might influence the risks of surprise attack and accidental war, and their effect on peaceful space activities.
