Hyten: Joint Requirements For All Domain Out By June

Fingers crossed that the Army space team is getting our equities included!

Join them on Star Wars day!!

Join LTG Daniel Karbler, #ArmySMDC CG, and #USArmy NASA Astronaut Andrew Morgan on May 4 for The AUSA Noon Report.

The theme is "Army Space: Supporting AimPoint Force 2035." Karbler will discuss how Army Space contributes to a multi-domain operations-ready force. Army space capabilities are critical to successful ground combat operations today, and their importance will only grow as the MDO concept transforms. Space integration with land force operations continues to rise in importance as our reliance on satellite communications, GPS, electronic warfare, missile warning and surveillance capabilities grows. Space is essential to what the Army needs to achieve decision dominance.

LeoLabs declares Costa Rica Space Radar operational - SpaceNews

We definitely need to do better to harness commercial innovation and investments for situational awareness. There’s a lot of data out there...the key is allowing the DoD to harness it and not have to pay for it multiple times for each service...

LeoLabs’ announced April 22 that two S-band radars in Costa Rica have started tracking objects in low Earth orbit and delivering data to customers.

The most simple explanation of the Space Force and mission I’ve heard so far. Well done on Gen Raymond’s part.

I Asked the Head of Space Force What the Agency Has Done for Me Lately

The most simple explanation of the Space Force and mission I’ve heard so far. Well done on Gen Raymond’s part.

Gen. John Raymond has put up with plenty of mockery. But, he says, there’s nothing funny about protecting U.S. interests from Russian and Chinese anti-satellite technology.

Amidst Flood Of Data, Simplicity is Key: TRADOC Chief

This speaks to a key required attribute of Army Space Professionals. Being able to articulate relevant but complex amounts and types of information in a simple way for the staff and commanders is fundamental to success.

In new simulations, Gen. Paul Funk says, “we’re trying to replicate downtown Baghdad to the window, to the door knob.” How do you simplify masses of data so soldiers can use it for practical training?
