The US opposed the Galileo system mainly for three reasons. First, it would compromise the US efforts to prevent satellite navigation data from hostile use. Second, the Sino– European strategic partnership in the Galileo program would enhance the PRC’s military capability against the US in East Asia. Third, signal interference between the Galileo and the GPS would jeopardize US military operations. The list of strategic and security significance is not exhaustive. These examples clearly show the potential military application of space technologies.

As a result, the US government gradually transformed itself into a technocracy and accelerated the innovation of its space technologies to regain an advantageous position in the superpower competition. After the launch of USSR Sputnik 1 and Sputnik 2 satellites respectively on 4 October and 3 November 1957, strategic space exploitation entered the security concerns of the US and the USSR. Space-related issues burgeoned in their policy agenda. Large amounts of funds were invested in the development of space technologies.

Using an approach of cross-case comparison makes this book different from most studies on the transatlantic strategic interaction. In the current literature, Sebesta (1997) investigates how the US restriction on the launcher availability for European communications satellites motivated Europe to develop an independent launch capability. Sebesta also discusses the contextual factors that facilitated the European launcher policy. Some scholars provide numerous political analyses of the strategies adopted by Europe and the US to pursue their respective policy goals in the ISS program (Lambright and Schaefer 2004; Sadeh 2004; Logsdon 2005).
