Implementing Space technology into Army operations has been evolutionary in nature and slow in progress, taking many twists and turns and slowly gaining acceptance as our ground forces are transformed. Now having gained momentum, Space technology has taken on the appearance of a steamroller promising to create mission effective Soldiers for the next millennium. This technology is the embodiment of a new vision, a transformation into a new world. The Armys future in Space is vital and essential. It protects our Soldiers via situational awareness, enhanced communications, speed of implementation, and operational overmatch that allows for better battle management and combat support Force enhancement. With the potential of all but freeing our Soldiers from the fog and friction of war, Space has now become mission essential for combat operations.
