In Defense of Japan: From the Market to the Military in Space Policy 

In Defense of Japan: From the Market to the Military in Space Policy pdf

Book Description:

In Defense of Japan provides the first complete, up-to-date, English-language account of Japan’s strategic space development history, politics, and policy. Space technologies’ dual-use nature, meaning they cut across both market and military applications, has had two significant consequences for Japan. First, Japan has developed space technologies for the market in its civilian space program that have yet to be commercially competitive. Second, faced with rising geopolitical uncertainties and in the interest of their economics, the makers of such technologies have been critical players in the shift from the market to the military in Japan’s space capabilities and policy. This book shows how the total of market-to-military moves across space launch vehicles, satellites, and spacecraft, and emerging related technologies already mark Japan as an advanced military space power.
