Small Satellite Proliferation, Advanced Technologies, and Their Security Implications

Primary tabs

The uncontrolled re-entry of China’s rocket, which launched the core module of China’s space station, has raised concern about the absence of norms governing space. To provide an important perspective, FPRI has assembled a panel of experts to discuss the risks and opportunities of dual-use technologies. How do we ensure a space environment that is safe and sustainable as the number and capabilities of objects in space increase? Can new technologies help mitigate the risks of international conflict over space?

For more information on the security implications of satellite technologies, read “National Security Implications of Emerging Satellite Technologies” in the Fall 2020 edition of Orbis.

This event is co-sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics and the Center for Strategy, Technology, and Policy at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, Georgia Institute of Technology.
