Growing the space industrial base policy pitfalls and prospects by Robert Lyle Butterworth ( )

For more than 50 years, the United States used the inventiveness and productivity of its economy to overmaster Soviet advantages in numbers and geography. This ₃asymmetric₄ strategy₇arguably the most sustained and extensive in history₇proved triply successful. It brought superior defense and intelligence capabilities, many of which might remain unchallenged for years to come. It brought economic advancement, as national security research and engineering found commercial and civil applications. And, it brought scientific and technological advancement, demanding and fueling basic and applied research at universities, public corporations, and commercial companies. These benefits are still eagerly welcomed today, but it is not clear how they might be continued. Over the past 10 years the technical and industrial base serving US defense needs has shrunk and congealed, as changing international and budgetary circumstances have brought different threats, smaller force structures, and much smaller procurement budgets. And, other markets have offered far greater commercial rewards. Accordingly, the US national security community has thus been looking for opportunities to participate more fully in commercial processes, and on occasion to go further, to use public budgets and policies to shape and structure those processes. For example, Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics Jacques Gansler declared to Congress in May 2000 that ₃it is clearly in the national interest (in the absence of ₁normal₂ market forces) for us to create an enabling environment to ensure a competitive, healthy, and technologically advanced defense industrial base.₄ The space industrial sector has been of particular concern given its intimate connection with national security operations and plans, its broad importance for science and technology, and its competitive position toward foreign governments and producers. However, the industry has been struggling, and without US government actions it may not have the depth and vitality to provide affordable solutions to future national security requirements. What type of government action could improve the situation? This is the question addressed in this paper by Dr. Robert Butterworth, a consultant on space policy issues for several years and currently a visiting professor at the Air War College. He notes that the Defense Department has long hoped that its needs for space products and services could be supplied by an industrial base that is sustained by commercial sales. However, according to Dr. Butter-worth₂s analysis, that day has not yet arrived₇despite years of targeted purchases, investments, and acquisition reform. The author proposes a more promising approach based on a strategic outlook on research, development, and procurement. While such an approach could prove difficult to sustain, working toward it could reduce the likelihood of more counterproductive policies. In the end, Dr. Butterworth suggests that space programs are likely to achieve innovation and cost control in the future as they did in the past₇through active government participation and managed competition. As with all Maxwell Papers, this study is provided in the spirit of academic freedom, open debate, and serious consideration of the issues. We encourage your responses

Interstate security conflicts, 1945-1974 by Robert Lyle Butterworth ( Book )
6 editions published between 1977 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This data collection contains information about 310 cases of interstate conflict that had a political-security focus and occurred between 1945 and 1974. Each case represents a conflict management problem associated with particular conflicts. Cases are characterized in terms of the goals of the parties and management agents as perceived by the international community at the time of the conflict. Thus, a case may not correspond directly to a conflict. (One case may represent several different conflicts and a conflict may result in several cases.) For each conflict management problem, data exists that identifies the core case and describes conflict characteristics (e.g., type of issue, number of fatalities, duration, and likelihood of abatement if no management agents became involved), management influence (e.g., specific agents -- including a range of 45 specific organizations and governments, agent's bias, and agent's previous involvement), and management action (e.g., at what phase of conflict the agent became involved, phase of strongest action, and technique of management action)....

Space and the joint fight by Robert Lyle Butterworth ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Technology has extended space progressively deeper into warfare, while potential adversaries are working to extend warfare further into space. The former calls for new arrangements to provide tactical space reconnaissance; the latter demands recognizing where and how space is essential to the emerging joint fight. The measure of merit for military space is enhanced combat capability Military space must evolve to the assured provision of uniquely essential space capabilities designed, acquired, and operated to enable combat effects that bring success on the battlefield. Planning for tactical space reconnaissance largely reflects the efforts of previous decades to extract warfighting support from systems designed for other purposes and operated by another community. Substantial analytic work is needed to shape effective responses both to foreign threats (soon) and to budget exigencies (sooner)"--Publisher's description
Conflict Management by International Organizations, 1945-1970 by Ernst B Haas ( )
2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study contains data on 146 disputes in different geographical regions of the world that were managed by international or regional organizations in the period 1945-1970. Part of the project on Studies in International Integration of the Institute of International Studies at the University of California (Berkeley), this study was aimed at addressing how much difference international organizations have made in the management of international conflicts. Data are provided for conflicts brought before at least one of the following organizations whose primary concern was conflict management among members: United Nations, Organization of American States, Organization of African Unity, Arab League, and the Council of Europe. For each dispute, data are provided for the name of the conflict, issues at stake, power status of the parties involved, responses of the international organizations involved in managing the dispute, interstate nature of the dispute, duration of hostilities, civil and military fatalities, likelihood of the dispute abating, disappearing, or escalating if the disputing parties were left to themselves by the international organizations, and the likelihood that the United States and the Soviet Union would engage in a major war over the dispute, involving the use of nuclear weapons or massive conventional weapons on several fronts. A summary scale was developed by the investigators to measure the intensity levels of each dispute, and to score the successes of organizational management of the dispute....

World Handbook of Political and Social Indicators II intervention data, 1948-1967 ( )
1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This data set contains data for interventions recorded at daily intervals during the twenty-year period 1948-1967. The daily report is the unit of analysis. There are 1,073 records, one for each day on which an intervention occurred in a country. The number of records per country varies. If, for example, a country had no action meeting the criteria for inclusion as an intervention, no record is given for that day for that country. Those countries not involved in an intervention were excluded. Data are recorded for 89 of the 136 nations in the World Handbook Aggregate Data file and two international organizations. Some of the 31 variables included are the number of interveners, type of group involved, air and naval incursions, and length of intervener's presence in the country. The data sources are THE NEW YORK TIMES INDEX, ASSOCIATED PRESS, ASIAN RECORDER, AFRICAN RESEARCH BULLETIN, MIDDLE EAST JOURNAL, and AFRICAN DIARY
