Abstract : SPACECAST 2020 was a Chief of Staff of the Air Force (CSAF)-directed space study, challenged to identify and conceptually develop high-leverage space technologies and systems that will best support the warfighter in the twenty-first century. This is the first of four monographs: Executive Summary, the SPACECAST 2020 Process, The World of 2020 and Alternative Futures, and Operational Analysis. The SPACECAST 2020 study produced many new ideas and reinforced some old ones. Air University sought to envision the possibilities, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to exploit the space high ground in pursuit of national security objectives.
