Abstract:

To maintain, or even increase, the force multiplying effect Space has on the battlefield, ideas such as the Joint Space Operation Center need correct implementation. By correctly using these constructs, ideas on how Space can, should and will be used to maximum effect will affect institutionalized Space thought, also known as doctrine, for the better. At a minimum, corresponding joint and service Space doctrine should reflect changes in technology and capabilities for Space assets, not just merely mirror another mediums doctrine i.e. air, naval or Marine. When this mirror imaging occurs, ideas such as the Director of Space Forces are confused in scope and responsibility with their better-defined counterparts such as the Joint Force Air Component Commander or the Commander, Air Force Forces.
