Abstract:

The Army is and will remain the largest user among the Services of Space-based capabilities. The Interim and Legacy forces already leverage overhead constellations of military and civilian Space platforms for intelligence, communications, attack warning, weather and position, timing, and navigation. The Objective Force will exploit the full potential of these systems. Operational simultaneity, situational understanding, precise and tactically responsive intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and assured communications are implicit in the Objective Force Operational Concept, and will depend on successful mid- and far-term development of overhead architectures, systems and platforms. The Objective Force will also rely heavily on the Joint Forces ability to assure our access to Space resources while denying them to the enemy.
