Abstract:
The US is being denied effective use of space systems for tactical support of combat operations because of doubts regarding the survivability of space missions in hostilities. Space systems survivability has been the object of widespread analysis and development for fifteen years. Because survivability is expensive, the decision to make the necessary substantial investments for high-altitude satellites will be postponed until there is tangible evidence that the threat is developing into anti-satellite weapon systems. Therefore, space system development and acquisition must be formulated so that the appropriate survivability investment can be made as the physical attack threat at high altitudes eventually emerges.
