The dynamics of space security in 2020 were unsettled by suspicions over state behaviour in outer space. This continued the pattern of 2019, when there was a marked increase in the development and display of counterspace capabilities.1 Legal ambiguities and an absence of predictability in state behaviour can lead to an increase in militarization and weapon proliferation. This was demonstrated in 2020 by rendezvous and proximity operations (RPOs) and alleged anti-satellite (ASAT) tests.
