9781423533252: The Law Governing Aerospace Warfare in the Twenty-First Century

This is a AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSONAFB OH report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A837483. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: The world is in the midst of a revolution in the conduct of military operations wherein modem military aerospace information systems, weapons and their associated weapon systems are changing the conduct of warfare. Aerospace power has become the dominant, if not decisive, factor in modem warfare. Yet, there are currently no treaties dealing specifically with the law of armed conflict in the air and space environments. Chapter 1 describes the evolution to date of the law governing aerospace warfare. Chapter II analyzes the relevance of military interventions in Iraq and Yugoslavia (Bosnia; Kosovo) to the law of air and space warfare. Chapter III discusses the impact of humanitarian intervention' on the law of aerospace warfare. Chapters IV and V explore the role and effect of earth-based and space-based military assets respectively. This thesis concludes that although the existing law of armed conflict is capable of evolving to cope with the legal issues posed by aerospace warfare in the twenty-first century, the conclusion of multilateral agreements to deal with some of those issues is advisable.
