Abstract:

Our Nation is in a period of persistent conflict where we are confronted by state, non-state, and individual players who are not constrained from using violence to achieve their goals. The Army has a role in dealing with this persistent conflict to prevail in protracted counterinsurgency campaigns engage to help other countries build capacity and assure friends and allies support civil authorities at home and abroad and deter and defeat hybrid threats and hostile state actors. Todays military is increasingly reliant on space-based assets to provide critical enablers for mission success, i.e., satellite communications, positioning, navigation and timing, and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, just to name a few. If our space systems are ambushed, how do we quickly understand what happened and react How will the Army prevail in a denied, degraded, disrupted space operational environment D3SOE Determining the answers to those questions is a critical task for every FA40 Space Operations Officer and space Enabler.
