The uses of all classes of space systems both military and commercial are rapidly increasing. In turn the surveillance of these systems and their activities are becoming of increasing importance to the uses of these systems. Unfortunately, the present surveillance infrastructure is not keeping pace with the demand for information and new infrastructure and capabilities are needed. As a result new technologies are being developed to support the need. These technologies can be used by both the military and commercial use and thus 'dual-use technologies' have come into reality. The background conditions, current research directions, and their dual use applications are briefly examined.
