Biden Administration U.S. Space Force Policy Literature


The U.S. Space Force (USSF) was established during the Trump
Administration. With the 2021 transfer of power to the Biden Administration, there was some debate as to whether the newest U.S. armed service branch would continue in the new administration. Policy pronouncements from the Biden Administration and ongoing congressional oversight and appropriations demonstrate that USSF will remain a key part of the U.S. national security architecture. This work examines U.S. Government literature on USSF produced by the Biden Administration, other U.S. government agencies, and congressional oversight entities during the first three quarters of 2021. It demonstrates there is sufficient bipartisan support to financially and politically sustain USSF for the foreseeable future. How long this support is sustained remains to be determined
based on managerial developments with USSF and the extent the international security environment places increasing emphasis on USSF using its evolving capabilities to address emerging threats to U.S. and allied national security requirements.
