Military and Space Technology

The militarization of space entails the deployment and advancement of weapons and military technology in the vacuum of space. Early space exploration in the mid-20th century had a military component, as the US and the Soviet Union used it to demonstrate ballistic-missile technology and other technologies with military applications. Military spacecraft, such as imaging and communications satellites, have been operating in outer space since then, and some ballistic missiles travel through it on their way to their target. Only the Almaz space-station armament and handguns like the TP-82 Cosmonaut survival pistol are reported to have been deployed in space as of 2019. (for post-landing, pre-recovery use)
