- However, as improved technology lowers costs and more countries deploy satellites and anti-satellite technology, space debris will become a bigger problem for all militaries with a stake in space.
- Ultimately, with the U.S. military the most reliant on space-based technologies, the United States will have the most to lose from advances in other countries' anti-satellite systems.
