Speaker: Dunnmon, J. (Stanford University)
Date: 22 August 2018
SMA hosted a speaker session presented by Dr. Jared Dunnmon (Stanford University) as a part of its SMA STRATCOM Academic Alliance Speaker Series. Dr. Dunnmon began his presentation by discussing the challenges for 21st century nuclear command, control, and communication (NC3), as well as the US’s increasing reliance on space-based NC3. He identified potential NC3 vulnerabilities in both outer space and cyber space and explained a few major classes of exploitable flaws in these domains. He proceeded to describe various technological tools currently being developed for risk mitigation and policy tools that “adapt old rules to new domains.” Dr. Dunnmon concluded his presentation by talking through a scenario (an Advanced Extremely High Frequency [AEHF] satellite malfunction) and offering his concluding thoughts.
