In Defense of Japan
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines emerging technologies that Japan has developed from its long experience with rockets and satellites, discussing the progress of Japan's efforts to develop the H-IIB, Galaxy Express, the Advanced Solid Rocket, and those rockets resulting from Ballistic Missile Defense. It also considers other space activities, particularly those focused on Reusable Launch Vehicles, scramjet research, and the ASNARO/Sasuke spy satellite. The chapter furthermore argues that the survival, viability, and profitability of some of Japan's emerging satellite and rocket technologies depend on securing a military angle.

Keywords:   emerging technologies, Japan, rockets, satellites, H-IIB, Galaxy Express, Advanced Solid Rocket, Ballistic Missile Defense, Reusable Launch Vehicles, scramjet
