21 September 2015. Report 51, written by Letizia Caito while she was a Resident Fellow at ESPI, deals with a critical issue for the European space effort, namely how to get to technological non-dependence. The report describes the history of the European efforts in this domain, the current state-of-play, and what needs to be done to secure the future.
15 September 2015. The commercialisation and advancement of satellite technology has made possible the emergence of a new group of non-governmental experts that employs satellite imagery analysis to produce policy-relevant knowledge about issues of international security. This ESPI Perspective reflects on the practices of knowledge production based upon satellite imagery and its wider ramifications. The findings of this Perspective aim to contribute to a necessary debate on the legitimacy of knowledge claims based upon satellite imagery in the field of international security.
