SWF Releases 2021 Global Counterspace Capabilities Report

Thursday, April 1, 2021

The Secure World Foundation (SWF) is proud to announce the release of its annual report, “Global Counterspace Capabilities: An Open Source Assessment.” Edited by SWF Director of Program Planning Brian Weeden and Washington Office Director Victoria Samson, this report compiles and assesses publicly available information on the counterspace capabilities being developed by multiple countries across five categories: direct-ascent, co-orbital, electronic warfare, directed energy, and cyber. It assesses the current and near-term future capabilities for each country, along with their potential military utility.

The full 2021 report and the Executive Summary, along with previous year's editions, can be found here:  http://www.swfound.org/counterspace

Translations of the 2021 Executive Summary into French, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese will be available in May.
