Space 300 is the beginning of a career-long pursuit for space professionals to develop the global perspective necessary to provide innovative solutions to the Coalition & Joint Communities. The 2018 US National Security Strategy identifies three main sets of challengers to global security – the revisionist powers of China and Russia, the rogue states of Iran and North Korea, and transnational threat organizations. Simultaneously, the rapidly expanding commercial space industry provides low-cost space capabilities and options for nations and actors across the globe to enter a previously inaccessible domain. This course introduces the student to the who, what, and why regarding China, Russia, and commercial space programs. By examining the national objectives of both countries, their current and developing space-based capabilities, and commercial space endeavors, graduates of this course will have a firm understanding of the challenges and opportunities these doctrinally based capabilities pose to western allied interests. This course examines the following Chinese, Russian, and commercial industry space capabilities: National Objectives, Doctrine, and Organization; Space Lift; Space Domain Awareness (SDA); Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR); Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT); Satellite Communications (SATCOM); and Nuclear Detection (NUDET), Environmental Monitoring (EM), Missile Warning (MW), and Missile Defense.
