Within a short time span Germany evolved into a significant actor in space security affairs. On December 1, 2010 the German Government introduced the German National Space Strategy. The strategic importance of space for German security policy has been mentioned repeatedly. However, a verifiable substantiation that is based on facts is missing so far. Until today there exists a certain gap of academic attempting to analyze German space security policy as a strategic aspect of German security policy. The political scientist, Cornelius Vogt, analyzes the strategic aspects of German space policy. His comprehensive study examines the strategic environment, the German national interests, the security policy benefit of space, and the most important fields of application. The study shows that space has become an indispensable element of German whole-of-government security preparedness.
