Space Defense / Militarization of Space

The U.S. Military and government has spent a lot of time and money while considering the militarization of space.  The following documents offer a glimpse into that past.

 ABMA Presentation to NASA, November 2006 [ 155 Pages, 28.64MB ] – This document was referenced in the Project Horizon document.

 Automation Tools for Responsive Space and Space Superiority, 02 August 2011 [ 5 Pages, 0.8MB ] – This consists of the Title Page and Table of Contents ONLY.  The quote for the entire document was in excess of $450 for the review of this 192 page report.  I requested the title page and TOC for reference.

 The Air Force Role in Developing International Outer Space Law, May 1999 – The author describes the Air Force ‘s continued efforts to resist the passage of most international outer space law conventions, the restiveness of the Air Force judge advocate general corps with a backseat role, and how the judge advocate general failed in its early attempt to have the Air Force become proactive in the development of the law. Discusses the early evolution of international outer space law and the United States Air Force’s contribution to it. Describes the Air Force’s ad hoc approach and its efforts to have this approach adopted by the United States and the international community.

 A Brief History of the DoD Space Test Program, December 1993 [ 184 Pages ]

 A Brief History of the DoD Space Test Program, December 1995 [ 178 Pages ]

 Counterforce from Space, 1961  [ 31 Pages, 1.67MB ] – The concept of counterforce is analyzed in terms of the strategy, tactics, and weapons involved. It is concluded that the present tendency of military leaders to talk of “counterforce” and “deterrence” as inter:- changeable concepts greatly clouds the real issue of just what are the advantages and implication-s of a nonpre-.emptive counterforce strategy. The possibility of performing realistic counterforce operations from space (assuming essentially unlimited payloads), the tactics deployment, and weapons involved are examined.

 Space Situation Awareness AFRL Technology Investment Recommendations, 06 June 2003 [ 98 Pages, 24.11MB ] – As the war in Iraq and the global war on terror have demonstrated, the U. S. is in the midst of embarking on new national security priorities that require doctrinal and technological innovation and an awareness of the threat to a fidelity never before realized. In the context of transforming military force structure to meet these challenges, close examination of the business as usual vs. out of the box concepts must be conducted and assessed. Technology transformation and implementation, in particular, will play an even greater role in the success of carrying out national security objectives, from military tactical operations to strategic intelligence analysis.

A planet , meaning "wandering star", is a celestial body orbiting a star or stellar remnant that is massive enough to be rounded by its own gravity, is not massive enough to cause thermonuclear fusion, and has cleared its neighbouring region of planetesimals.
V (also known as V: The Series) is a one-hour weekly television series that aired in the United States on NBC in 1984-85. It is a continuation of the science fiction franchise about an alien invasion of Earth by a carnivorous race of reptilians known as "The Visitors"

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC.
A Mars landing is a landing of a spacecraft on the surface of Mars. Of multiple attempted Mars landings by robotic, unmanned spacecraft, seven were successful.There have also been studies for a possible manned mission to Mars, including a landing, but none have been attempted


This website proposes something truly inspiring. It is this: We have the technological reach to build the first generation of the spaceship known as the USS Enterprise – so let’s do it. The ship can be similar in size and will have the same look as the USS Enterprise that we know from the Star Trek science fiction.



If the only strange things seen in the sky were a few oddly moving lights at night, or some specks glinting in the sun, there would be no UFO issue. But there have been many close range observations of these strange objects. Often by multiple witnesses and sometimes with radar confirmation.
