Abstract : In June 2010, the president released a new National Space Policy (NSP) defining the principles, goals, and guidelines aimed at advancing and preserving national space interests. The new policy acknowledges the congested, contested, and competitive nature of space as compared to the beginning of the Space Age when there were only a few nations which possessed the means to access and benefit from the space domain. Today we live in a world enabled by space capabilities providing weather, imaging, communications, warning, position, timing, and navigation information used by governments and individuals alike. At Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), we understand this well as the providers of GPS capability. GPS timing signals literally enable the interactions of the global economy, yet it was originally intended to provide accurate navigation for military systems. Indeed, much has changed since the dawn of the Space Age, and the president's NSP acknowledges the opportunities and challenges in space.
