This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the market-to-military trend in Japan's space technologies. It argues that the dual use of space technologies has always been as true for Japan as elsewhere despite the long-standing government emphasis on commerce and science in the space program, and suggests that Japan's militarization has already become reality. The chapter also discusses the analytical and policy implications of the country's space capabilities, and the provisions of the Basic Space Law and the new Basic Space Plan, which provides Japan with a comprehensive national space strategy.

Keywords:   space technologies, market to military, Japan, militarization, space capabilities, Basic Space Law, Basic Space Plan
