CSIS: ‘Implications of Ultra-Low-Cost Access to Space’

0

READ THE REPORT — “Since the advent of the space age, a primary constraint on military, commercial, and civil space missions has been the cost of launch,” the Center for Strategic and International Studies writes of its new report, “Implications of Ultra-Low-Cost Access to Space,” written by Aerospace Security Project Director Todd Harrison, Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group Director Andrew Hunter, International Security Program Research Associate and Program Manager Kaitlyn Johnson, and Aerospace Security Project Program Manager and Research Assistant Thomas Roberts. “Launching objects into space requires substantial investments in launch systems and infrastructure, which has restricted the market to only a handful of national governments and several large private companies. This study explores the possibility of a space industry significantly less constrained by the cost of access to space.” The report was released on March 21, 2017, ahead of CSIS’ 2017 Space Security Conference.
