ABSTRACT

Department of Defense Memorandum: Establishment of the United States Space Force   [open pdf - 244KB]

From the Document: "The Fiscal Year 2020 National Defense Authorization Act establishes the United States Space Force as a new Armed Force within the Department of the Air Force. The creation of the U.S. Space Force is the most significant reorganization of the Department of Defense (DoD) since the Goldwater-Nichols DoD Reorganization Act of 1986, and the first new Armed Force since the United States Air Force was authorized by the National Security Act of 1947. Establishing the U.S. Space Force will elevate the role of space in our national defense and transform how DoD organizes, trains, and equips in order to prepare for new security challenges in an era of great power competition."
