The New High Ground takes us to the new arena of military operations--space. Thomas Karas introduces us to scores of the most powerful and influential men in the space establishment-the military, NASA, the aerospace industry. They think the time has come to treat space as a medium for the military, instead of merely as an area for research and development. Already fulfilling these plans are dozens of space satellites that provide the Pentagon with instant communication to ships, planes, and bases around the globe; detailed pictures in visible and infrared light of the most secret Soviet military installations; navigation satellites that tell a pilot the exact altitude and location of his aircraft to within fifty feet.

Karas shows us the mechanical, political, economic, and military inner workings of the newest technology.
