Abstract:

The Nation is losing the information war against global terrorism. Many audiences abroad regard the United States as the aggressor despite the unprovoked attacks visited on New York and Washington in September 2001. Moreover, most of the Islamic world is growing increasingly hostile to Washington and its agenda. Even traditional allies and friends have responded negatively to the perceived American intent of going it alone. One key factor is the widening gap between U.S. and foreign military capabilities, which is largely attributable to superior and more integrated use of global information, in particular space-derived information. The United States has shown little inclination to work with allies to integrate the military uses of space in multilateral planning and operations. The well-financed European effort to build an independent space-based global navigation system (Galileo) is a clear reaction to U.S. intentions regarding the global positioning system (GPS). Space and information can be forces of integration rather than the causes of fragmentation in global security. They can present security opportunities. Internationally, this debate is especially important given the U.S. commitment to missile defense and military space programs and resulting perceptions abroad and the Pentagon is working to acquire sword and shield capabilities in space.
