Space Force releases "Spacepower" report
Posted: Sat, Aug 15, 2020, 4:27 PM ET (2027 GMT)
The US Space Force has released a report describing its vision of "space power." The document, released Monday, lays out a vision for what the space branch of the armed services will do, and explains why the United States considers space a domain of warfare. Gen. John "Jay" Raymond, head of the Space Force, called the document the "capstone doctrine" for the new service. The Space Force doctrine says the United States must have military capabilities in space to protect national assets such as communications and GPS satellites, as well as offensive weapons to deter adversaries from hostile actions. Raymond said the US wants space to remain peaceful, but needs to be prepared should deterrence fail.
