This book shows how the use of reconnaissance satellites could be expanded to benefit the international community. A number of international experts review the technological requirements for satellite monitoring of arms control agreements and show that there is no serious technical obstacle to implementing an international satellite monitoring agency along the lines suggested to the United Nations in 1978.

Editorial Reviews

'The work's strength lies in its analysis of the technology, and it is particularly good on the importance of different degrees of definition and on the different types of sensors available. It is a useful read for those interested in the strengths and limitations of different verificationtechniques, and Bhupendra Jasani's opening essay is a model of clear information in an area where the superpowers still like to keep their detailed capabilities concealed.'Trevor Taylor, Staffordshire Polytechnic.
