Recently, I developed a tutorial on how to fight and win the next space war. Past audiences have really responded well to this tutorial, which takes me about 1.5 - 2 hours to present. A summary of this tutorial is:

Additional space warfare concept documents developed by Paul Szymanski are below. If you have trouble downloading any of these documents due to restrictions at your work site, I can email them directly to you:

  1. The below file provides a very detailed analysis of what are the basic information requirements that space commanders need in order to fight and win the next space war. These Battle Management and Command and Control (BMC2) features will enable future space command systems and warfighters to respond in a timely and informed manner for any space situation that needs to be dealt with:

  1. The below concept files list all of the fundamental requirements to fight and win the next space wars. They provide analysis results of Paul Szymanski’s development of space warfare theory, doctrine, strategies and tactics. They ensure close alignment of space warfighting principles with Joint Chief of Staff (JCS) doctrine for terrestrial command of the battlefield. The first briefing summarizes some of these key points:

  1. The following document and summary briefing synthesize Paul Szymanski’s 43 years in analyzing space warfare theory, doctrine, strategies and tactics along with his 50 years studying military history to provide the reader with his personal assessment of the top 40 rules for executing space warfare:

  1. The below summary briefing and detailed data listing illustrates Paul Szymanski’s analysis of Sun Tzu’s ancient military teachings as they apply to outer space warfare strategies. A total of 546 space strategies have been derived from these ancient teachings, yet only one-third of this analysis has been completed. This analysis is on hold until I find some organization to sponsor its completion:
