PSSI Contributes to AMOS SSA Policy Forum

14.09.2018

PSSI’s Space Security Program Director, Dr. Jana Robinson, participated in a panel discussion at the SSA Policy Forum, part of the annual Advanced Maui Optical and Surveillance (AMOS) Technologies Conference, held in Maui, Hawaii, on September 11-14, 2018. The conference brought together some 830 participants from 22 countries, including civil and military officials, defense contractors and space experts from academia and think tanks. Dr. Robinson talked about the challenges confronting U.S. and allied space security interests stemming from China’s and Russia’s brand of “space partnership” arrangements. She argued that these partnerships are often driven by a desire to gain influence, or even control, over the nascent space sectors of countries such as Argentina, Belarus, Bolivia, Nigeria, and Pakistan (what PSSI terms “space sector capture”). ​More information about the conference can be found here.​ An article about the event in The Maui News can be accessed here. ​
