Abstract:

Space - the final frontier. So began a popular TV series of several years ago. As our military transforms into smaller, lighter, more agile units with more responsive capabilities to address global uncertainty, the necessity of harnessing and exploiting this final frontier is quickly becoming one of the most important enablers for Army transformation. We have long relied on Space as a means of extending reliable communications beyond line-of-sight and over-the-horizon, for providing early warning of enemy missile launch, identification of military and military-related construction, and detection of major military movements. Its important to additionally note Space as a provider of products to support position, location, navigation, weather, terrain, and environmental monitoring.
