Shane Bilborough talks about the military’s defense as we continue to adventure into space. Currently, Bilborough argues the analysis of the operational challenges and opportunities with space warfare are under-developed by at least two decades. He proposes a guide to solve these issues with ideas such as exploring the role of commercial space systems and anticipating technological competitions. “What happens in space will have a decisive effect on Earth militarily, and vice versa,” Bilborough states when describing his ideas of keeping space operations tied to military on Earth. The establishment of the U.S. Space Force sets the terms and expectations of other countries with technology as well as strategic planning.
