The Military Space Transparency Project Released Their Space Technology Forecast

Cambridge , MA | Posted on January 22nd, 2010

The mission of the Military Space Transparency Project (MSTP) is to reveal the efforts, policies and innovations that will culminate in the research, development and deployment of space warfare technologies. MSTP not only focuses public attention on dedicated military space technologies with warfare applications, but also specializes in uncovering the dual-use and emerging technologies that will lead to the weaponization of space. Through its research and reporting, MSTP aims to promote international dialogue and the resulting development of international treaty regimes that would address these dual-use and emerging technologies before they are able to undermine peaceful international space collaborations and ultimately our national security.

Matthew Hoey founded the Military Space Transparency Project (MSTP), based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Hoey is a former senior research associate at the Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies (IDDS), a United Nations Non-Governmental research organization located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he forecasted missile defense and military space technologies.
At IDDS Hoey worked under the guidance of renowned arms control expert Dr. Randall Forsberg. Hoey also served IDDS as a contributing editor to the Arms Control Reporter, for which he wrote on missile defense, military space systems and dual-use technologies. Hoey's research has been featured by the Council on Foreign Relations, Foreign Policy Magazine, The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Cryptome, The Space Review, The Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI), The Center for Defense Information (CDI) and the WEU Interparlimentary European Security and Defense Assembly among others. Hoey has also lectured at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and at the MIT Science, Technology and Global Security Working Group. Hoey's current research is focused on the impact of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, directed energy and nanotechnology on military and commercial space systems.
