Space Security and Safety. Law, Management, Policy.
Autor: Małgorzata Polkowska
„The book delivers a complete overview of the current situation and directions of evolution in the area of space infrastructure security, on which the development of modern societies and economies depends.
The author focuses on this range of problems by dedicating a key part of the book to the subject of observational Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and, in an operational context, to Space Domain Awareness (SDA). The analysis covers range of activities of governmental and commercial organizations, and highlights the need for transparency in this area. In a detailed, yet convenient way, based on an extensive historical outline, the author analyzes the current status quo in the scope of organization and management of the increasingly crowded space traffic.
The publication is a reliable reference point and an excellent introduction to the complex subject of near-space exploration and exploitation in terms of regulatory standards and policies. Thanks to a multidimensional approach to this issue, the reader is familiarized with the technological aspect of space activities (SSA, SDA), as well as with the regulatory principles of the orbital environment protection that require consensus in the international arena”.

„This publication focuses on Space Situational Awareness (SSA) in the broader context of space security and sustainability. It provides an overview of the current geopolitical dynamic, efforts by new countries to enter the space sector, as well as activities designed to anchor thriving space commerce. Earth observation and Space observation programmes are used to demonstrate the dual-use aspects of space technologies. It also explains the U.S. and European approaches to SSA and Space Traffic Management (STM), issues related to space cybersecurity, as well as national approaches to SSA in select countries. As such, this book should be regarded as required reading for anyone interested in the development of a comprehensive approach to space security nationally”.
