The White House recently released Space Policy Directive-4: Establishment of the United States Space Force. This is a big deal, as no branch of the Armed Forces has been created since the United States Air Force was established in 1947, more than 70 years ago. According to President Trump, "Our destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security." Initially, the Space Force will be established within the Air Force. The directive also calls for a new Unified Combatant Command (US Space Command) to be established that will be responsible for Joint Force space operations as will be assigned in the Unified Command Plan. From an acquisition standpoint, the Space Force will assume responsibilities for all major military space acquisition programs and create the appropriate career tracks for military and civilian space personnel across all relevant specialties, including operations, intelligence, engineering, science, acquisition, and cyber. Are you going to be in the Space Force?
