Space capacities have developed as a critical component of public strength in this innovation driven world. As a matter of fact, the double use nature of this technology advances and their applications have seen significant development in both conflict and harmony times throughout the course of recent many years. Since the underlying investigation of space was driven by public esteem and military power, then, at that point space powers — the United States and the Soviet Union — put vigorously in its tactical applications. Customarily, space innovations have been utilized in the tactical area for cutting edge correspondence, exact route, intelligence, surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR) Capabilities, and meteorology. Nonetheless, with novel headways, these advancements are presently additionally being utilized in Ballistic Missile Defense(BMD), high level sensors, early admonition systems, and anti-satellite (ASAT) systems. As a result of quickly developing exercises in space and the rising number of countries wandering into it, space is turning into a clogged as well as a challenged domain. Aside from fostering the capacities that help military exercises on Earth, States are additionally procuring weapon frameworks to battle in space causing a weapons contest in this space also. Despite the current worldwide lawful system given under the Outer Space Treaty (OST) — which unequivocally denies the utilization of room for military purposes, the US and NATO have officially announced space as the fourth medium of warfare.
A valid example is the newly equipped clash between Ukraine and Russia which has featured the significance of uninterrupted access to space for States in contention. This contention is additionally happening in the space area alongside the land, ocean, air, and the internet. There is a huge deviation between the capacities of both in this multitude of regions particularly since Ukraine lost its significant satellite ground station situated in Crimea when Russia attacked the domain.
The main objective of this Conference is to utilise this platform to discuss the contemporary issues and challenges in outer space pertinent to warfares with an analysis based on legal, political, economic as well as the scientific aspect in order to ensure peace and security in the international sphere.
Taking note of the existing warfare in various parts of the world, the ICFAI University is bringing together researchers, students, academicians, lawyers and professionals from the various legal and scientific fields to share their expertise, experience and wisdom, enabling them to provide insights in their respective fields yielding maximum discussion of conference topic under both legal and technical fronts. We are looking forward to maximum participation, thorough research and a refined write-up. After thorough review, the best write-up will be out for publication as a book with ISBN reference.
