Commercial Satellite Imagery: A tactic in nuclear weapon deterrence
Bhupendra Jasani, Gotthard Stein
Springer Science & Business Media, Jun 1, 2002 - Science - 299 pages
This will be the first book that deals with the use of commercial satellite imagery to monitor non-proliferation of nuclear weapons non-intrusively from space by an international organisation. The book deals with both the technical as well as policy issues related to the nuclear weapons non-proliferation issues. The authors discuss how an international organisation such as the International Atomic Energy Agency can use information derived from satellites to enhance its policing task.
