Space Security Index 2013 is the tenth annual report on developments related to security in outer space, covering the period January to December 2012. It is part of the broader Space Security Index (SSI) project, which aims to improve transparency on space activities and provide a common, comprehensive knowledge base to support the development of national and international policies that contribute to the security and sustainability of outer space.
SSI is a consortium of governmental, non-governmental, and academic organizations that produces the annual Space Security Index. The Governance Group is comprised of representatives from Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), the Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies, the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University, the Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses, The Simons Foundation, Project Ploughshares, and the Secure World Foundation; and members of the Advisory Board represent the Intelsat General Corporation, the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University, and HEC Montreal.
The Space Security Index is supported by Secure World Foundation, The Simons Foundation, Project Ploughshares, and the Erin J.C. Arsenault Trust Fund at McGill University.
