Improving Integration and Synchronization of Space Acquisition and Fielding


Author Organization(s):

Report Date:



One of the key goals of the United States Space Force (USSF) is to deliver space capabilities on a faster timeline to outpace adversary threats. However, delivering an end to end space capability requires the integration and synchronization of multiple elements (e.g., space systems, ground command and control systems, and user equipment) whose development and fielding are managed by not just the Department of the Air Force but also by other military departments and federal agencies. Additionally, to increase the resilience and warfighting capacity of the space enterprise, USSF may need to work across the Department of Defense and other government agencies to integrate and synchronize complementary capabilities across multiple mission areas(e.g., overhead persistent infrared space systems to support missile warning and missile defense).In its new role, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Space Acquisition and Integration (SAF/SQ) has made improving the integration and synchronization of the delivery of space capabilities a priority. The objective of this report is to recommend ways that USSF can facilitate the integration and synchronization of space acquisition and fielding to support the timely delivery of end-to-end space capabilities to the joint force.
