The Future of MILSATCOM

This report argues that the US’s military satellite communication systems (MILSATCOM) are becoming increasingly vulnerable to physical, electronic and cyber-attacks by those who reject the idea that space should be a conflict-free domain. Given these threats and the specter of reduced budgets, the report thus suggests that the US might want to improve the passive defense, disaggregation and dispersement capabilities of its MILSATCOM systems.
