Abstract:

Since Desert Shield and Desert Storm, the Army has increasingly recognized the value and role of Space operations at the tactical level. This recognition is becoming an operational reality as the Army transforms its tactical forces and doctrine to meet the threat in todays contemporary operational environment. Space support of tactical operations is changing from what was essentially a liaison relationship to an embedded, doctrinally supported staff responsibility. Army Space Operations Officers are currently assigned to each Legacy corps G3. As the Army continues its transformation, these highly skilled officers will establish Space Support Elements SSEs in the interim division and corps. The Interim Force SSEs are a bridge to the Objective Force and the Army is capturing this presence in its emerging Army doctrine. The Combined Arms Doctrine Directorate at Fort Leavenworth is quietly and deliberately transforming Army doctrine. This new doctrine reinforces the value of Space operations by including Space and the role of the Space Operations Officer in four key doctrinal publications Field Manual FM 7-15, Army Universal Task List Army Training and Evaluation Program 100-1571-100 Mission Training Program, CorpsDivision Command Group and Staff FM 5-0, Army Planning and Orders Production, and FM 6-0, Command and Control.
