概要 | Description



Recently, there has been a growing public interest in dual use, which is “cargo, software, and technology that can be used for both civilian and military purposes,” not only in the realm of large corporations but also in the realm of startups. On the other hand, what exactly is dual use and how should the private sector deal with it?

In this session, as part of the series, we will constructively understand and discuss dual use and opportunities related to dual use, touching on trends in the “space industry” that are closely related to security.
