Study on the Application of Confidence-Building Measures in Outer Space

image of Study on the Application of Confidence-Building Measures in Outer Space
With about 300 operational satellites in orbit and more than half of them on military missions, the Members States are advocating greater transparency and confidence-building measures to prevent an arms race in outer space. This study considers the current uses of outer space and emerging trends with special emphasis on the technical problems involved. Global and bilateral agreements concerning both military and peaceful aspects of outer space are also dealt with. Most importantly, it covers the over-all question of confidence-building and the political, legal, technological and scientific considerations of its implementation.

Foreword by the Secretary-General

All States have the right to explore and beneficially use our common space environment. For the international community, the constant challenge of the space age has been to expand human horizons through the peaceful exploration and use of outer space, while also preventing space and space technology from being used for threatening or destructive purposes.
