Abstract : The speed with which a promising military critical technology becomes available for military use is determined to a great extent by the effort and support focused on that technology. Determining which space technologies deserve this attention requires knowing at what performance level or technical parameter the technology becomes militarily critical. The Space System Technology Working Group (SSTWG) identified and parametrized those space technologies that are militarily critical, space unique, and dual-use and those that should be considered for cooperative agreements with industry and academia and memorandum of understanding (MOU) with other countries. This Executive Report provides government, industry, and academic personnel concerned with space technologies the purpose, methodology, and results of the SSTWG study. It includes tables that identify critical space technologies and their parameters.
