The consequences are wide-ranging, from surveillance and national security to detecting early warning signs of natural disasters to mining materials in outer space to the accumulation of clutter in orbit. 

The University of Arizona is an international leader in optics and astronomy, and TechLaw faculty and fellows have special opportunities to work with researchers across the campus to anticipate and manage conflicting uses of space as a resource. TechLaw faculty and fellows are invited to participate in the Arizona Space Business Roundtable.
