Aerospace is made up of air space and the outer space closest to the Earth; the two of them are constantly readjusting their dynamic. Aerospace security concerns safe, sustained, sustainable access to the uses and applications of this space, as well as the absence of threats from this region. A comprehensive conception of aerospace security takes into consideration military, environmental, commercial, civilian, or legal threats. Clear norms and codes of conduct are indispensable to this, and the legal vacuum regarding disarmament and the arms race must be filled.
