H.A.S.C. No. 115-83: Space Warfighting Readiness: Policies, Authorities, and Capabilities, Committee on Armed Services, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, Second Session, March 14, 2018   [open pdf - 3MB]

This is the March 14, 2018 hearing titled "Space Warfighting Readiness: Policies, Authorities, and Capabilities" held before the House Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of William M. "Mac" Thornberry: "First, space is a domain of warfare, not just an enabler. Second, we are falling behind where we should be when it comes to space. Today's hearing will discuss how we catch up. As we refocus our defense efforts on strategic rivals, it is clear that they are putting significant effort into space. I believe the American people still do not fully realize how dependent our country is on space, not just for military and intelligence purposes, but in our everyday lives as well. That dependence creates a vulnerability, which, like in the other domains, we must count on the American military to protect." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Todd Harrison, C. Robert Kehler, and Doug Loverro.
