Its mission will be to integrate space capabilities across all branches of the military, developing space doctrine, tactics, techniques and procedures, Pence said past year at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, when the administration announced plans for a new Space Command and separate Space Force.
"Next week we will formally stand up the new unified combatant command that will be known as the United States Space Command", Pence said during the sixth meeting of the newly established National Space Council as he stood beneath the space shuttle Discovery at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va.
"I'm pleased to announce that we will recognize its new leader, Four Star Air Force General John Raymond will be the first leader of the United States Space Command", said Vice President Pence.
The U.S. Space Command will be the military's unified combatant command in charge of the country's defense operations in space.
The Pentagon will stand up a new combatant command before the end of the month, with the official launch of U.S. Space Command set for August 29. "We understand it. And we're moving out". Satellites provide communications, navigation, intelligence and other services vital to the military and the national economy.
"The U.S. Space Command will be charged with defending our critical space assets from the increasing threats posed by potential adversaries", Donovan said.
He stressed the U.S. resolve to counter accelerating military activity in space by China and Russian Federation, such as the development of weapons to destroy satellites.
The Space Force would be a sixth branch of the armed forces and would require congressional approval.
