Open Skies

Chapter eight covers the treaty's implementation, which was signed on March 24, 1992. Ironically, it was after it was signed that the overflight regime was worked out in detail as those operating flights designed practical ways to fulfill its objectives. Political issues still bedeviled the process. A formula was found, however, that permitted neutral countries to join, except Cyprus. Chapter eight explores how the Open Skies idea might be applied in other contexts. Since the beginning of the talks the extension of the regime to other parts of the world, and also using flights flights for environmental and crisis monitoring, have been envisaged. For various reasons, none of this has happened. Recently, some have also proposed that Open Skies could be useful in verifying deep cuts in nuclear and other Weapons of Mass Destruction. This would require an evolution in the regime, and this chapter explores what that would entail.
