Product Overview

What if North Korea detonates a nuclear weapon in space and silences dozens of satellites?

What if an Iranian missile threatens to destroy Israel, while a Venezuelan "research" satellite endangers one of the US''s most promising space initiatives?

What if tech-savvy terrorist cells unleash back-to-back horrors in California while national leaders, robbed of spy satellite imagery, are forced to make "blind" decisions?

These are the scenarios of "Counterspace," a frighteningly plausible look at threats to the United States and the world. Scott, Coumatos, and Birnes use war gaming scenarios to show how the US Strategic Command might use current and near-future technology to prevent global disaster.

"Counterspace" is equally the revelation of a terrifying possibility and the hopeful affirmation that America will triumph in the face of danger.
