Paper: Protecting Space Assets from Irregular Threats – July, 2024

Abstract: As space continues to grow in importance as a commercial and national security domain, the US military and intelligence community (IC) have recognized the need to defend space assets from an increasingly broad and sophisticated range of threats from adversary nations. Countermeasures include threat detection across cyber and kinetic attack surfaces. The increasing role that space plays in economic and national security terms, however, also heightens the risks posed by non-state actors and criminal organizations. This paper explores the issue and offers an approach to detecting and mitigating threats of space crime and piracy using integrative system architectures and technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI).
