Space ISAC White Papers
Developing a Sustainable Space Domain
The Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (Space ISAC) advocates for the responsible use of space and associated space-related activities. In alignment with the United States Space Priorities Framework, December 2021, the Space ISAC will focus on and advocate in the near-term for work-force development and the continued emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education to support space activities; the enhanced use of space in support of climate change; and the establishment of norms, which should include a discussion leading to the end of destructive anti-satellite (ASAT) testing in outer space. The Space ISAC also supports responsible behavior in space for all actors, and as such, developed three key pillars around developing norms and behavior for collective security, adopting space evolutions, and ensuring access to universal public-private sharing of threats. At such a key inflection point where space infrastructure is nearly indivisible from a functioning society, it is imperative to ensure the preservation of the space domain.
