J(E)DI 2010 2 Cooper/Henry Combat Zones That See Case Neg Military Surveillance is key to security of Us Citizens – turns aff agency args Caceres 02' Marco Caceres, "Military satellites: The next generation." January 2002, Aiaa.com (Aerospace America Online) Ultimately, military satellites are no more and no less than very useful tools that help government provide security to its citizens. It is important to understand this in order to avoid an overreliance on this technology and a belief that more of it is necessarily always better. It is possible that we may need more satellites than are now planned, or different types. But this realization should not be based solely on the new threat that we face. Communication edges and surveillance are essential to prevent the destruction of America Dinerman ‘09 [Taylor Dinerman, Hudson New York, “Bad for America: The Ban on Space Weapons”, February 25, 2009, http://www.hudson-ny.org/336/bad-for-america-the-ban-on-space-weapons] Invariably in war, striking an undefended weak point, especially a critical communications link, is a great advantage to the attacker. America’s satellites are the key to making our high technology war fighting systems work effectively; they are even more important in helping to avoid deaths from ‘friendly fire,’ and to civilians from stray bombs and shells. Destroying them would be a high priority at the beginning of any major conflict. A ban on space weapons would insure that they would be totally vulnerable to attack; this is what has been called a “Space Pearl Harbor.” Such an attack would be even worse than Pearl Harbor, as the targets would not just be a few old battleships, but would be the heart of America’s intelligence, communications and navigation systems. After such an attack this country and its leaders would be effectively, blind deaf and dumb.

J(E)DI 2010 3 Cooper/Henry Combat Zones That See Case Neg Removing CTS would lead to a military trade off with Satellites – The Sun Herald ’90 [The Sun Herald, News and Features, October 21, 1990. p. 8] "Desert Shield" is the military's name for the mission to defend Saudi Arabia from possible attack by Iraqi troops. The US already has a small fleet of spy satellites that can monitor Iraqi troop movements night and day, see through camouflage and hear sensitive battlefield communications. A new satellite would bolster those abilities. Aviation Week said the spy satellite was code-named Air Force Project 658, weighed 10,000kg when fully fuelled and carried cameras that transmit pictures back to Earth rather than sending back exposed film. The satellite would be boosted into an orbit 740km high. The US Government has five picture-taking craft that orbit hundreds of kilometers above Earth and beam photographic images
