2017 - SPACE DOMAIN AND ALLIED DEFENCE - MOON REPORT- 162 DSCFC 17 E rev1 fin

Report Title: The Space Domain and Allied Defence
Acting Rapporteur: Madeleine MOON (United Kingdom)
Year: 2017

Governments and private agencies continue to hone their abilities to utilise the space domain at a rapid pace. Long-range satellite communications and data transfers weave the globe’s highly complex $78 trillion economy together and allow national defence forces to train and operate. As private industry moves quickly to become a central player in the space domain, the benefits of space investment are expanding to a proliferation of actors allowing for the rapid privatisation and democratisation of the domain.
