Abstract: This report discusses the threats to strategic defense satellites
over the next 20-30 years. It describes the purposes and sizes of the
satellites, the types of attacks on them, the counters to those attacks, and the
likely outcomes of the encounters. It concludes that their survivability and
contribution to stability should increase over the next 20-30 years because of
the advanced technologies that should become available then.
