The Combined Space Operations (CSpO) Initiative Principals Board – comprising representatives from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, New Zealand, the UK, and the US – met in Cape Canaveral, Florida, last week to discuss co-operation on space security.
Representatives stressed the importance of fostering ‘responsible uses of space’ principles, noting opportunities for greater collaboration, including bolstering space systems interoperability and co-operation between space operations centres.
CSpO members also condemned space militarisation activity, making specific reference to Russia’s recent test of an anti-satellite missile, fired into low-Earth orbit.
