The number of space actors has increased dramatically, as have the threats to space assets. Understanding the impact these have on space policy – both in the UK and internationally – and how militaries are responding is essential for assessing the intentions of states and for imagining what conflict in space entails. Our research areas cover UK, allied and adversarial space policy; space warfare; counterspace capabilities; space domain awareness; and space in disarmament and arms control.
