PSSI Held a Closed Roundtable on Unconventional Threats to Europe’s Space Operations

18.05.2018

On May 18, 2018, PSSI convened in Prague a closed roundtable entitled “Responding to Unconventional Threats to Europe’s Space Operation”. The event discussed challenges related to what we termed “space hybrid operations”, that is space-relevant actions/activities that involve ambiguous attribution, temporary and mostly reversible effects, and limited public visibility (e.g. jamming or spoofing, use of low-power lasers, proximity and rendezvous operations, cyber attacks, or economic and financial “space sector capture”). The goal of the roundtable was to establish a framework for discussion concerning space hybrid operations and their knock-on effects; configure key arguments for European civil, commercial and military decision-makers to raise the priority accorded these threats; and review possible options available in Europe to help integrate these threats into the space security architectures of individual NATO and EU member states in order to strengthen space infrastructure resiliency, deterrence, and responses.
