Secure World Foundation (SWF)... ISR "Eyes" For China (Event)

[SatNews] Over the last several years, China has made significant investments in developing and deploying space-based intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to support military and national security requirements and enhance their regional power.

China is also developing doctrine and policy for the space domain, and integrating these new space capabilities into their anti-access/area denial strategy. These developments represent an evolution in China’s role in space, from an asymmetric actor to an established space power with significant investment and newfound vulnerabilities in space. Join the Secure World Foundation as we discuss how this shift may impact China’s approach to space security and sustainability, the U.S.-China bilateral relationship, and possibilities for international cooperation on space security issues such as the European-proposed Code of Conduct. Speakers include:
  • Mr. Mark Stokes, Executive Director, Project 2049 Institute
  • Mr. Kevin Pollpeter, China Project Manager, Center for Intelligence Research and Analysis, Defense Group, Inc.
  • Dr. Owen Coté, Associate Director, Security Studies Program, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Mr. Brian Weeden, Technical Advisor, Secure World Foundation
  • Moderator: Ms. Victoria Samson, Washington Office Director, Secure World Foundation
Lunch will be served. This discussion is open to the public but attendees must RSVP at https://secureworldfoundation.wufoo.com/forms/p7x2z7/ by Monday, Nov. 7, 2011.
