Abstract: This research brief examines strategic competition between China and the United States in the fields of missiles, space, and counterspace. In particular, it looks at Chinese military advances in anti-ship missile (ASM), space, and counterspace technologies and the response of the US military to these developments. China and the United States find themselves in a security dilemma characterized by a competition that could easily turn into an arms race.
