Emerging U.S. Government and Military Literature on the U.S. Space Force


Established in 2018, the U.S. Space Force is the newest branch of the U.S. military. The reality of space as an arena for international geopolitical and military competition has been around for decades in scholarly literature and publicly accessible government information resources. This work examines recently published U.S. Government and military literature on Space Force. These works examine various economic, military, and political aspects of this entity and how it may affect U.S. national security policy in years to come. Public opinion polls on space force are also included. An additional objective of this work is enabling readers to use their analysis of this lecture to explore potential business contracting opportunities, contacting their congressional representatives, and participating in the federal regulatory process to express their views on Space Force developments.
