Air Pressure: House Pressure would price $13 billion over 5 years

There is already a Space Command within the Air Force. Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson have dutifully fallen in line, at least publicly, despite their previous strong opposition just to the Space Corps proposal, never mind a separate military service.

Adding 74 squadrons (each squadron typically has 12 to 24 aircraft) would require an additional 40,000 personnel, both military and civilian, Air Force spokeswoman Ann Stefanek said, leaving the Air Force with a headcount of about 725,000 by 2030, compared to the current projection of roughly 685,000.

The current force structure of 312 squadrons is too small to meet even the current mission focused on counterterrorism in the Middle East, Wilson said at the Air Force Association's Air, Space, Cyber Conference outside Washington. "Which is why it is important to come together like this, to take stock of where we are, so that we can reaffirm where we need to go". In general, proponents of a new force have argued that the Air Force has not done enough to prioritize space and that its other missions distract it from its focus on the world above.

In a move to protect its turf, the Air Force memo recommends using its existing Space Rapid Capabilities Office for satellite acquisition until the space force is established.

"The [National] Defense Strategy tells us that we need to be able to defend the homeland, provide a credible nuclear deterrent and win against a major power while countering a rogue nation, all while managing violent extremists with a lower level of effort", Wilson said. "This is a longer term proposition", said Wilson.

"We have worked with Congress and the White House to define the evolving space problem that we confront".

Military.com reported that "the service intends to grow by a total of more than 70 squadrons". "A fist is nothing without the weight of the body behind it". Additionally, the Air Force's Unit Command and Control system was speedily migrating to cloud. She specifically drew attention to the advances these countries have made in electronic warfare, hypersonics, and testing and said that the Air Force is responding by growing the force at a faster pace than in previous years.

"Right now, we have not gotten the exact mix of tails", Goldfein said.

The proposals differ significantly from those released last month by Patrick Shanahan, a deputy secretary of Defense, and suggest substantial infighting among the Pentagon's top brass over how to build the new force.

"As Airmen, we have the responsibility develop a proposal for the president that is bold, and that carries out his vision", she said.

The proposal to create a new Space Force as a sixth branch of the USA military has drawn a lot of buzz (as well as approval from Buzz Aldrin) since President Donald Trump first announced the plan in June and Vice President Mike Pence supplied more detail in August. The increase would bring the Air Force to about 717,000 personnel, including the Guard and Reserve.

These actions include restructuring of the Space and Missiles Systems Center, which will enhance purchasing of space systems, and working with the Joint Staff to establish and support a unified combatant command for space. But this reliance on space has also become a vulnerability - a dynamic that has not escaped the attention of competitors and adversaries such as China and Russian Federation, which have also bolstered their own space capabilities over the past two decades.
