Abstract : Joint force commanders rely on space and cyberspace capabilities to help create the effects they need across the spectrum of conflict. The asymmetrical threats and challenges we face require that we constantly explore new and more effective ways to meet the needs our joint commanders demand. As space systems have grown to provide more detailed and diverse services more quickly and more frequently, they have been integrated ever more tightly with real-time military planning and operations. Today, space capabilities are embedded in a host of systems serving forces and commanders at every level. Space is no longer just the high ground; it is an integral part of joint operations. Operational plans and advanced weapons depend on space as never before, and military plans must take into account potential loss of capability by space assets due to mischance or hostile action. Military forces demand space systems to provide timely and continuing support to joint force commanders in peace, crisis, and war. Our forces demand space systems for use in training and exercises, and whose products and services can also be extended to our allies and coalition partners. US forces increasingly need a space architecture responsive to military purposes that can support operational plans. They demand capabilities that are configured to optimally serve tactical needs and that can continue to contribute to the joint fight, even when under duress.
