Description


Air Force Doctrine ANNEX 3-14 SPACE OPERATIONS 19 June 2012 Historically, militaries have viewed the "high ground" as essential to maintaining the advantage in warfare. With rare exception, whichever forces owned the high ground gained superior ability to maneuver and maintain visibility of the operational environment to effectively "own the fight." In that tradition, space assets orbiting high above our planet's surface offer a superior position and an expansive view of the Earth, as satellites can observe, collect, and disseminate information and enable command and control (C2) of US and allied forces globally. The Air Force views space operations as integral to joint force planning and operations. Space operations involve space superiority and mission assurance. The essence of space superiority is controlling the ultimate high ground of space. However, space superiority is focused on mission assurance rather than dominating or "owning" space. The ultimate goal of achieving space superiority should be to maintain our own space capabilities when contested and ensure unhindered mission continuity through any conflict.
