NIAS-NAS Virtual Dialogue: Space Security Challenges

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

The National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) and National Academy of Sciences (NAS) have been hosting a series of track 2 dialogues between Indian and U.S. strategic experts. The most recent was “Space Security Challenges,” and it covered a spectrum of issues affecting space security and stability.  Washington Office Director Victoria Samson presented on “Security Implications of Mega-Constellations and Space Crowding,” where she discussed the disruption the arrival of mega-constellations have placed on the space domain, the role the right of way places in complicating space traffic management, and the consequences that anti-satellite tests much like Russia’s held on Nov. 15, 2021, have for space debris in low Earth orbit.
